Colors of Nature, Tiffany’s new high jewelry 2021 Blue Book collection, features the dazzling array of confections you would expect from the storied brand. Gemstones both familiar and less so—demantoid garnets and spessartines, for example—scintillate in a full-tilt exploration of hue and intensity. But in this outing, the jewelry has to share the spotlight. Among the highlights is a series of twofold treasures: rings paired with complementary vessels crafted from start to finish by individual artisans at the Tiffany hollowware workshop in Cumberland, Rhode Island. Composed of rock crystal or sterling silver, 18-karat gold, or a combination of the metals, the boxes are small-scale monuments to Tiffany’s time-honored legacy of silversmithing artistry. From the start, the company enlisted only the best talent, enticing legendary silversmith John C. Moore to join the brand in 1851.

One vessel, composed of a layer cake of silver sheet with an inky black patina, is an artful interpretation of lava rock; its spellbinding mate is a black opal ring with electric flashes of orange and red against a moody, multicolored background. The same synergy exists between a turtle shell box rendered in polished sterling silver and gold and an octagonal emerald ring that share similar contours. Together, they amount to masterpieces, inside and out.
