I’m really an avid tea drinker. I love to drink my tea hot, even during the summer season (weird? Could be, as I’m also enjoying home-made ice tea as well but I’d rather have my tea on the hot side). As such, when our dear friend, Ellington, sent me a link to Tiffany’s Gatsby inspired jewelry collection, my eyes saw the sparkle of the tea set instead of the precious gems and cascading chained metals and beads.
And in good reason as while a bracelet costs $10,500 (I’m just citing one of the many prices, don’t be alarmed, they’re not all 5-figured tagged!) and the fancy tea set costs $34,550. Sterling silver, Arts&Crafts inspired, this set really is as iconic as the brand and the architectural inspiration it was spawned to remind of.
Breaking it down in elements, the round tray is ‘just’ $3,200 while the teapot costs $14,400. The sugar bowl and the creamer each come with a price tag of over $8,400. I loved the copper rivets, the jade lids and the rosewood handles. It’s really a lovely addition to any tea passionate or for those who dream about a real Breakfast at Tiffany’s sensation. Be sure to stock on silver whitening solutions as tea is known for its tinting properties.
