Tiffany & Co. celebrates 175 year anniversary with a new jeweler’s metal – Rubedo

A robin’s-egg-blue box never fails to elicit delight – the kind of unparalleled magic Tiffany & Co. has carefully created during the last 175 years. While the company has become synonymous with covetable jewels and memorable moments (who could forget Audrey Hepburn’s morning gnosh in front of the Fifth Avenue flagship in Breakfast at Tiffany’s?), its commitment to constant innovation is equally remarkable.

From Tiffany’s 1880s revamp of the Great Seal of the United States that’s printed on every dollar bill today, to tapping some of the world’s most renowned designers, to creating a new metal (the blue-hued Rubedo unveiled this year), Tiffany’s brand of elegance always seems perfectly suited to the times – with a little extra sparkle, of course.

So what’s next for the legendary jeweler? First, a celebration in the form of a magnificent new setting for the Tiffany Diamond, one of the largest and finest fancy yellow diamonds in the world. And in August, the design house will grace us with Enchant, the latest jewelry collection, inspired by the natural world. Here’s to another 175 years and many, many more blue boxes.

New music, surf film: Billabong Blowup (plus soundtrack)

Surfers know the best place to find new music is in a surf film. We would probably watch surfing for hours but it definitely helps to have great music.

The latest surf film from Billabong, Blowup, has it all. Great shots, editing that flows, and amazing music. Surprisingly the majority of the songs are form girl bands, and they rock!

The movie is free to download and here are the songs from it. I found a video for each one which you can see on the YouTube playlist. Plus, below is the full set list (soundtrack) and a video playlist of all at once.

My new favorite bands 🙂

  • Holly Golightly – “Nothing you can say”
  • Cassete Kids – “Lying Around”
  • Stiff Little Fingers – “Suspect Device”
  • The Pandoras – “Hot Generation” (song from the film, “I want him”, can’t find online)
  • The Spinnerette – “Ghetto Love”
  • French Films – “Dropout Jr.”
