Jeweler Tiffany has a new Tumblr, From Out of the Blue, that, according to a press release, "captures in fabulous imagery and incisive commentary the 175-year heritage of Tiffany & Co., as well as the glamour and luxury that exemplifies Tiffany today."
The site has three themes: Timeless Tiffany includes the story of Tiffany, including its diamond heritage, major milestones, masterpieces, drawings from the Tiffany Archives and a virtual hall of fame that showcases vintage ads and images of jewelry from every fashion era from the Gilded Age to the present day; Tiffany Insider, a gallery of images and videos that Tiffany says "captures the excitement and creativity behind photo shoots, dressing stars in Tiffany diamonds and unveiling windows that invite the imagination to dream of elegant new worlds"; and Tiffany In Style, which covers events and introduces designs in jewelry and accessories, along with advertising images and videos.
As of Friday, posts had been tagged with #TimelessTiffany and #TiffanyInsider.
The site will also feature images of The Legendary Gemstones of Tiffany, a collection of jewels that was created in honor of Tiffany's 175th anniversary.
