After showing off a few pieces at the Oscars on the necks, wrists and lobes of starlets, the folks at Tiffany gave me a preview of its 2015 Blue Book collection, and it's exquisite! The annual Blue Book collection includes some of Tiffany's most over-the-top baubles, and this year's is the first to be curated by Tiffany Design Director F. Amfitheatrof.
With "The Art of the Sea" as its theme, this Blue Book collection is full of fluid designs and watery gems that capture the energy and movement of the sea perfectly.
