Tiffany & Co logo

Founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and Teddy Young in New York City in 1837 as a "stationery and fancy goods emporium," the store initially sold a wide variety of stationery items, and operated as Tiffany, Young and Ellis in lower Manhattan. The name was shortened to Tiffany & Co. in 1853 when Charles Tiffany took control, and the firm's emphasis on jewelry was established.[4] Tiffany & Co. has since opened stores in major cities all over the world.

Each year Tiffany & Co. creates a new Vince Lombardi Trophy, the award given to the NFL team that wins the Super Bowl that year.[5]

The first Tiffany catalog, known as the "Blue Book", was published in 1845. It is still being published today.

In 1862 Tiffany & Co. supplied the Union Army with swords (Model 1840 Cavalry Saber), flags and surgical implements.

In 1867 Tiffany & Co. was the first US firm to win an award for the excellence in silverware at the Exposition Universelle in Paris.

In 1877, an insignia that would become the famous New York Yankees "NY" logo was struck on a medal of honor by Tiffany & Co. and issued to the first NYC police officer shot in the line of duty. The Yankees adopted the logo in 1909.

The company revised the Great Seal of the United States in 1885.

In 1919, the company made a revision to the Medal of Honor on behalf of the United States Department of the Navy.[6] This "Tiffany Cross" version was rare because it was awarded only for combat, using the previous design for non-combat awards.[7] In 1942 the Navy established the Tiffany version for non-combat heroism, but it proved unpopular, perhaps due to its resemblance to the German Iron Cross. In August 1942 the Navy eliminated the Tiffany Cross and the two-medal system.[8]

In 1968, US First Lady Lady Bird Johnson commissioned Tiffany to design a White House china service, which featured 90 flowers.[9][10]
In June 2004, the jeweler Tiffany & Co. sued eBay, claiming that eBay profits from the sale of counterfeit Tiffany products.[11] Tiffany lost at trial and on appeal.[12] See Tiffany v. eBay for more details.

On January 28, 2008, it was announced that the Japanese mobile phone operator SoftBank and Tiffany & Co. had collaborated in making a limited 10 model-only cellphone. This cellphone contains more than 400 diamonds, totaling more than 20 carats (4.0 g). The cost is said to be more than 100,000,000 yen.[13]
