Don’t we all want to be like Audrey Hepburn and have breakfast at Tiffany’s? On Monday morning we actually did. A long breakfast table was set for us in the middle of the Tiffany’s store in Amsterdam’s PC Hooftstraat.
We enjoyed smoked salmon and scrambled truffle eggs, and a sweet dessert of pear clafoutis with strawberries and whipped cream. While having a taste of these delicious bites, we took a closer look at some unique jewellery pieces designed by Jean Schlumberger.
The big favourite was the Jackie bracelet. A heavy enamel bangle encrusted with diamonds and a hidden lock which comes in several different colours. As we heard, the Olsen twins wear three of these gorgeous bracelets worth of approximately € 30.000.
I preferred the more modest Lynn bracelet and matching ring, designed for Lynn Revlon, the wife of the founder of Revlon cosmetics.
Another eye-catcher was the ‘stitched’ ring, which has been worn by Anne Hathaway to an award ceremony. Yes, celebrities borrow this outstanding jewellery, even though they could actually afford them. Most of these pieces are unique and are especially made for these occasions. Same for the ‘wing’ earrings that Natalie Portman wore in her hair instead of her ears at the Oscars when Black Swan was nominated. She had to hand them in afterward.
So did we. But at least we can say we had ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s‘.
