Tiffany Jewels

May 31 - August 24, 2014

After developing his famed Favrile glass, Louis Comfort Tiffany served as the lead jewelry designer for his father's company, Tiffany & Co., beginning in 1902. At the height of the Art Nouveau period in Europe and America, his elegant jewelry designs were informed by a love of nature and exotic Middle Eastern cultures. Fueled by the exposure they received in several international expositions, Tiffany's jewelry designs became popular around the world. Kalamazoo is the exclusive venue for the exhibition, which was organized by the KIA.
