Few brands are synonymous with a color or have been immortalized in literature, but then again there are few brands that are quite as special as Tiffany & Co. This September the jewelry house celebrates it 175th anniversary. While a trip through their doors will reveal a bevy of beautiful jewels and precious housewares, most girls dream of their piece of Tiffany coming in a small and rectangular robin's egg blue box presented in the hands of the man they love. It's no wonder since the jewelry house has been creating gorgeous engagement rings since it debuted its iconic Tiffany Setting in 1886. That's when Charles Lewis Tiffany introduced the style which lifted the stone above the band with six prongs so more light could pass through it, resulting in a never-before-seen sparkle. While the classic Tiffany Setting is still the jewelry house's top-selling ring, they now also boast nine other gorgeous settings.
