Each piece is truly an icon of self-expression and hope for the future. With so many styles to choose from, let’s take a look at what these keys mean and why you should get a Tiffany Key for yourself to celebrate personal milestones, or as a holiday gift for the luxe lover in your life.

About The Tiffany Key Collection

The Tiffany Key Collection launched in 2009. The Keys were inspired by archived vintage Tiffany keys, with “the oldest dating back to the 1880s.” The key message, if you will, is to boldly embody the key to your heart. 

Similar in the way that Cartier LOVE bracelets are a symbol of locking in love, Tiffany Keys symbolize a promise of love and carrying that close to your heart. In some cultures, keys are regarded as good luck, a tool that can unlock all your wishes, an expression of commitment, or a magnet for attracting love and all the finer things in life. 

To no surprise, fine jewelry brands, still to this day, aim to embody the very definition of love with their pieces designed to be worn and cherished for years, ultimately held in high regard. A Tiffany Key no doubt makes a sound investment and a sentimental gift. The novel hype around Tiffany is to be expected thanks to all our favorite celebrities helping make Tiffany cool again
