Thirsty Thursday and Tiffany & Co.?

First off let me start today by saying Happy 4th Anniversary to Bluebonnets and Brownies!  They are celebrating with a Le Creuset French Oven in Dune give away!  One of my favorites blogs!

Are you thirsty for some tea?
Do you Like Tiffany & Co.?
What do these two things have in common?

TIFFANY COCKTAIL

BLUE! 
A little history never hurts us!  Do you know the story behind the famous trademarked color?  I truly believe that the blue shade is what attracts most women to their store!  Oh and yes, the jewelry too!  This perfect shade took a lot of hours to create.

Tiffany Blue Color

  • The color known as Tiffany Blue is a specific light blue shade. It closely resembles the light blue of a robin's egg. The color Tiffany Blue was trademarked by Tiffany & Co. in 1837, the same year the company was founded. It is privately produced by Pantone with the PMS (Pantone Matching System) number of 1837, named specifically for the year the color was trademarked.

Tiffany & Co. History

  • The classic Tiffany "little blue box" exudes the ultimate material symbolism of romance and fine jewelry. Tiffany and Co. began as a stationery and fancy goods store in New York City. In the 1850s, it started producing silver products and supplied the Union Army with swords, surgical equipment and flags during the Civil War. In the late 1800s, the company introduced the "Tiffany setting" on its diamond rings, elevating the stone above the band, and launched their jewelry department in the early 1900s. Tiffany and Co. continued to open stores across the globe and today is recognized as one of the finest jewelry retailers in the world.
