Breakfast at Tiffany's

Anyone watch Sunday Morning on CBS?? I always look forward to this show (when I wake up in time)! Well, this Sunday they talked about the 175th anniversary of Tiffany's! Some interesting facts that I was not aware of include:

1) Abraham Lincoln shopped there and bought some pearls for his wife (and apparently asked for a presidential discount!)
2) The Tiffany blue color was the favorite color of the wife of Napoleon III who was considered to be the most stylish woman of the world
3) They redesigned the great seal of the United States which appears on every dollar bill

With jewelry on the mind, I found myself on their site and thought it would be fun to see what everyone would pick out if money was no issue. It was a hard decision, but I think I would go with this ring:

I may be drawn to this because it happens to be my birthstone:) I love how the citrine stone is clear and I think I could rock this everyday....too bad it's $2,400!!

What would you pick??


  1. I had no idea they redesigned the seal that appears on a dollar bill - crazy!

    There are too many things that would get me in trouble at Tiffany. I'm obsessed with their canary diamonds.

  2. That's me too -- I always pick out the most expensive thing :) I'm visiting your blog courtesy of Lia. I love it! New Follower!

  3. Awww, thanks Melissa! You and April have great blogs as well!
