The contents of the legendary “Tiffany-blue” gift boxes from jeweler Tiffany & Co. have been must-have items for Manhattan’s upper crust since the 1830s. The shop’s tastemaking collections, which blend classic cuts with trendsetting original designs (like the “Tiffany setting” diamond engagement ring, which was created by founder Charles Lewis Tiffany himself in 1886), never go out of style–they’ve been flaunted by everyone from 19th century industrialists to 21st century Hollywood starlets. A visit to their posh granite premises on Fifth Avenue involves first scoping the famously eye-catching window displays (yes, the same ones Audrey Hepburn visited in Breakfast at Tiffany’s) before moving into the plush, hushed interiors to feast your eyes on the refined displays of lovely sparkling things.

WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s a New York classic. Whether you’re just here to window shop à la Holly Golightly or you’re seriously in the market for a long-lasting piece of bling, it’s worth a visit to Tiffany’s.
GOOD TO KNOW
If you visit this flagship store, make sure to check out the 287-karat fancy yellow Tiffany Diamond. It was purchased in 1878 by Charles Lewis Tiffany and remains one of the store’s most valuable and recognizable pieces. (Don’t get carried away, though, it’s not for sale.) One for the history buffs: the first Tiffany’s catalogue (or “Blue Book”) was published in 1845, and they continue to be published today. The holiday season is insane here, so avoid the store around this time if at all possible. For gifts or mementos on the more affordable side, head to the third floor, which holds the store’s extensive collection of sterling silver jewelry.
