Some like it pink: Tiffany Creates New Pink Jeweler’s Metal Called Rubedo

Some like it pink: Tiffany Creates New Pink Jeweler’s Metal Called Rubedo

Is there anything better than Tiffany? Doubtful – but pink does kick the awesome up a notch. To honor the jewelry giant’s 175th anniversary, Tiffany & Co. created a new jeweler’s metal called Rubedo. Imagine inventing a new metal to celebrate your birthday? Pretty cool, I’m rather in awe! In a statement, Tiffany said that the name Rubedo was chosen because “in the medieval philosophy of alchemy, Rubedo was the title of the very highest achievement, when matter and spirit fused to create something of rare beauty.” Love it. The new metal is a rosy pink color; an alloy of gold, silver and copper.

Wallet Pulsating: Tiffany Debuts New Art Deco Inspired Watch Collection

Wallet Pulsating: Tiffany Debuts New Art Deco Inspired Watch Collection

Full disclosure: I do not wear a watch. I do not even own a watch. I like to tell myself that in the age of BlackBerry obsession, I really don’t *need* a watch. However, every now and then my battery dies, and I can’t function as a human being, and for moments like that, were I to wear wrist candy, it’d be in the form of Tiffany & Co.’s new watch collection inspired by New York City during the 1920s American Art Deco period. The collection, called Tiffany Gallery, features stylized numerals and two versions are available: stainless steel with a blue face and stainless steel ($3,100) and diamonds with a white face ($5,700).
