On April 26, the venerable jewelers—whose San Francisco location was their first domestic store outside New York—rolled out the pink carpet at 350 Post. St. to celebrate a milestone anniversary.

Tiffany and Co. also used the occasion to launch their new 1837 collection in rosy Rubedo metal.  Bay Area guests ranged from San Francisco through Silicon Valley, with all in attendance lifting rose champagne toasts to the sleek, chic collection, and to the legendary purveyors of sparkly sophistication.
