TO RE GISTER AT TIFFANY

If you love beautiful things, registering at Tiffany & Co. is both a breeze and a delight. The adventure begins in the store itself, where you are encouraged to browse by yourselves, seeing and touching the timeless Tiffany designs. Because there are many different patterns, and tastes may vary, it is a helpful first step to establish your own design preference. Also, remember that it is important to register early. This is a courtesy to your guests and at the same time helps you receive the designs of your choice.

A TIFFANY TABLE

A beautifully set table is a theater where romance, wit and fascinating conversation unfold over an entire lifetime. The patterns you select today will quickly become an intimate part of your family's life. Which pieces you choose, and how many, depends very much on your taste, your lifestyle and your plans for the future. Here are some questions to consider while making your selections: What is the size of your family? Will you be entertaining friends or business colleagues? Do you plan to have seated dinners? Will you do buffet entertaining? Though the actual pieces you choose are up to you, Tiffany recommends a five-piece place setting for china and flatware. You should also remember that mixing different patterns is a perfectly acceptable expression of individual style.

In a formal setting, it is often centered on the plate. It is helpful to remember that logic and convenience determine the position of silverware on the table.

YOUR TIFFANY CHINA

There is a reason that Tiffany china designs are used and honored worldwide. The craftsmanship is unsurpassed. The materials are superlative. The designs are timeless. Over the years, Tiffany china only becomes more beautiful. Tiffany & Co. offers three kinds of dinnerware.

PORCELAIN

Porcelain is the finest grade of pottery, made of kaolin (china clay), quartz and feldspar. It is extremely malleable and can be formed into precise shapes with fine detail. Fine porcelain has varying degrees of translucence. Most Tiffany porcelain is made in Limoges, France.

BONE CHINA

Bone China is similar to porcelain with the addition of bone ash, making it the whitest and most durable and chip resistant of all chinas. The translucence of bone china is remarkable.

EARTHENWARE

Earthenware is fired at a lower temperature and is naturally more porous and less durable than porcelain or bone china. It is the least formal of chinas often appearing in whimsical shapes and freely painted patterns that add personality to casual dining. Tiffany earthenware is often hand-painted in Italy or France and covered with a fine glaze.

DINNERWARE PIECES

This chart illustrates the customary pieces offered in each pattern. Please note, some patterns may offer more or fewer selections. Tiffany recommends that you register for a service for 12 as well as the accessory serving pieces of your choice. A standard five-piece place setting includes a dinner plate, salad /dessert plate, bread and butter plate, cup and saucer. You might also consider adding a soup bowl to each place setting. Many brides and grooms register for extra pieces -- for instance, since salad plates usually double as dessert plates, registering for twice the amount can save you from having to wash dishes between courses. Remember that individual pieces can be ordered separately.

YOUR TIFFANY STERLING SILVER

In candlelight or breakfast light, nothing compares to the look and feel of Tiffany sterling silver flatware. And, with regular use, Tiffany sterling acquires a patina or soft luster, so pleasing to the eye. Tiffany silver is sterling silver. It was Tiffany & Co. that set the .925 sterling standard for American silver in 1851. In the hand, each piece of Tiffany silver is perfectly balanced with significantly greater heft. Tiffany uses more silver in its designs. Many Tiffany silver patterns date back to the nineteenth century. The workmanship in Tiffany sterling is truly remarkable. You will notice in all patterns the design motif is reprised on the back of the pieces. Knife handles are virtually seamless and not artificially weighted with sand or other foreign materials.

YOUR TIFFANY CRYSTAL

Tiffany crystal brings both elegance and tradition to the table. There is none more beautiful. And over the years, this is the crystal that honors every day and is used to toast those special occasions. Tiffany stemware and barware is made of crystal, not glass. Crystal is clear brighter and stronger than glass. The finished product is both a delight to the eye and a joy to touch. When tapped gently, it rings for the ear! Some Tiffany crystal can be engraved or etched with a monogram. With proper care, Tiffany crystal will survive for generations.
