Tiffany has introduced a ‘Out of Retirement’ partnership with Dover Street Market: 18 jewelry and gift items from Tiffany’s archives are now available at Dover Street Market’s New York location, marking the company’s first-ever collaboration on a capsule collection with another retailer.

At Tiffany, we don’t discontinue products, but rather we retire them,” Tiffany & Co.’s design director Francesca Amfitheatrof explains. “Tiffany has always been about modernity and beautiful materials—and these pieces are just as modern today as when they were first made. They are rich with the charm and wit that are an intrinsic part of the brand. It’s all about proportion, material and scale. The collection feels so glamorous and modern.”
