There isn’t a more iconic color than Tiffany Blue. Just a quick glance at a Tiffany Blue image instantly evokes a feeling of glamour, luxury, and excitement. Seriously, what other aqua or teal boxes can make you feel that way? The legendary light blue color known as Tiffany Blue, founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany, made its debut in 1845 on the cover of Tiffany’s “Blue Book.” Since then, Tiffany Blue has become an international symbol of class, elegance, and sophistication.
The New York City jewelry company certainly made a name for itself in the designer jewelry industry with its unique craftsmanship and high-end products delivered in a signature blue package. For over a century, Tiffany’s loyal clientele has consistently seen flawless jewels and began associating the luxurious gemstone blue box with the highest quality standards.
The Tiffany Blue color has become deeply embedded in mainstream culture, while remaining traditional and exclusive to its origins. However, it’s not uncommon to find everyday objects, like the below front door, in the Tiffany Blue color. That’s because colors carry meanings and symbolism. In this case, it tees up that an elegant home awaits you behind this light blue front door.
The Color Tiffany Blue
So, exactly what color is Tiffany Blue? Is it really blue? Or is it green? The answer is, it’s actually a perfectly subtle mixture of both. The Tiffany color originated from the light-medium version of the robin’s-egg blue color, also called forget-me-not blue. The company trademarked the color Tiffany Blue in 1998 and was standardized by PMS (Pantone Matching System). The custom color PMS created for the company is called “1837 Blue” which was the year Tiffany & Co. was founded.
