Tiffany & Co. marks 2016 as the 130th year of its iconic diamond engagement ring, the Tiffany Setting

To say that a Tiffany Setting is every woman's dream diamond engagement ring is perhaps an understatement. One of the most popular engagement rings in the world was first introduced in 1886 by founder Charles Lewis Tiffany, who wanted to create a ring that highlighted the beauty of brilliant-cut diamonds. Little did he know that the Tiffany Setting has become a symbol of the diamond jeweler's reputation for offering quality and unparalleled craftsmanship unlike any other.

This year, Tiffany & Co. marks the 130th anniversary of its renowned ring with a yearlong celebration. What sets the Tiffany Setting apart is its innovative design that elevates the diamond above the band, thus maximising the light reflected from the stone's exquisite cut. The legacy that the Tiffany Setting has lies in the hands of artisans, from expert gemologists to diamond cutters, setters and polishers, who give their voice to the making of this ring that has influenced generations of couples.
