The olive branch, known around the world as a symbol of peace and harmony, is the inspiration behind Paloma Picasso’s Olive Leaf Collection at Tiffany & Co. Tiffany designer, Paloma Picasso, is the daughter of the late art legend, Pablo Picasso. It is clear that art is in her blood as she is celebrated for her bold designs and brilliant choice in gemstones. Her designs, often sketched on hotel stationary and faxed over to Tiffany & Co., are intricate and beautiful. As a teen, she began showing interest in designing jewelry, her passion turning into a career styling avant-garde theater productions, and designing fashion jewelry for the legendary Yves Saint Laurent.
In 1979, Tiffany design director, John Loring invited her to create a table setting for one of Tiffany’s exhibitions. A year later, her first jewelry designs debuted at Tiffany & Co. Today, Paloma features several collections on a regular basis at Tiffany & Co. as one of their top designers. Her olive leaf collection is exquisite, with charming details and flawless topaz, amethysts, sparkling citrine, and lovely pearl. The splendid details of the jewelry are one-of-a-kind. Several pieces in the collection are surprisingly affordable to the everyday person too. If you do not own a piece of Tiffany jewelry, this is a great opportunity to start your collection.
