Located all over Manhattan, Tiffany & Co. is a high-end shop selling jewelry, watches and housewares. Their flagship store and most popular location is at 727 Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, and has been open since October 21, 1940. Specifically, Tiffany & Co. is well-known for its rare and magnificent diamond collection, like their iconic Tiffany Diamond, one of the world’s largest and fanciest yellow diamonds. It was the Tiffany Diamond, mounted in a Jean Schlumberger necklace, that Audrey Hepburn wore in promotional photographs for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Visitors can see the 128-karat diamond up-close on the store’s Main Floor. And for those who want a VIP shopping example, Tiffany & Co. offers personal shopping assistance and in-store diamond consultation. You can make an appointment for these services by calling 800-518-5555.
Even if you can’t afford to purchase anything, it is still worth stopping by the shop to simply peruse the merchandise and view their carefully decorated window displays, which are especially ornate during the winter holidays. To get to Tiffany & Co. on the subway, take the N, Q, R to 59th Street-Fifth Avenue; E, M to 53rd Street-Fifth Avenue; F to 57th Street.
