Creativity and craftsmanship have long been the central pillars of Tiffany & Co. Now, the iconic American jeweler has unveiled plans for its latest exhibition, “Tiffany Wonder,” an immersive experience exploring those unique ties. Slated to take place in Tokyo, Japan, this spring, the show will be on view from April 12 through June 23, transporting visitors on a journey through hundreds of Tiffany masterpieces utilizing legendary diamonds and showstopping colored gems.

Further elevating the theme, the installation is fittingly located in one of the tallest buildings in Tokyo, the Toranomon Hills Station Tower, designed by Galerie Creative Mind Shohei Shigematsu of architecture OMA. It’s an awe-inspiring setting for an equally grand presentation.

“Tiffany & Co. has been inspired by Japan for decades”

Tiffany & Co. boasts a long relationship with Japan, dating back to 1837 when founder Charles Lewis Tiffany would sell hand-selected imported Japanese goods to his clients. At that time, these exotic objets exemplified a rare and exciting offering for American consumers. The influence of Japan is of course still found throughout the brand, and Tiffany’s preeminent designer Elsa Peretti even found inspiration for her work in the nation’s traditional arts.
