Should the idea of Mother’s Day shopping in these days of suspended floral deliveries and absolutely zero al fresco brunch options leave you stumped, may we suggest an alternative—one that won’t wilt? First, breakfast in bed. Second, a handmade card is always nice. Third, the above two pair wonderfully with something seriously sparkly. (You know what they say about diamonds: they go with everything.)
Brick and mortar shops may be closed for the time being, but Tiffany & Co. has launched a new collection perfectly poised for some online retail therapy. Called T1, and designed by Chief Artistic Officer Reed Krakoff, the new collection signifies an evolution for the brand, employing 2014’s versatile, minimalist Tiffany T collection (streamlined mix-and-match bangles, necklaces, and rings, based around a ‘T’ motif from the brand’s 1980s designs) as a jumping off point. T1 combines clean, graphic designs with angular and feminine proportions; the pieces have softer edges than their predecessors, and a bit more heft. The results are perfectly in step with Krakoff’s vision of the company as a source of relaxed luxury with a mission of creating what they call “extraordinary jewelry to wear every day.”

The T1 launch collection has bracelets and rings in 18k rose gold, available in wide and narrow widths, and styles with pavé diamonds set by hand in a honeycomb pattern, priced between $850 and $28,000. Should you really be looking to splash out (because, you know, she’s worth it), a striking high jewelry necklace—masterfully set with mixed-cut diamonds, and priced at $150,000—will also be available.
“At Tiffany, we believe that luxury should be effortless and irreverent,” Krakoff said in a press release. “Through these pieces, we convey that precious stones aren’t just for special occasions—they can be worn every day as a celebration of yourself.” But should you have a special occasion in mind—say, recognizing and celebrating the powerful, wonderful women in your life? Well, all the better.
