There isn’t a more iconic color than Tiffany Blue. Glancing at a Tiffany Blue Box instantly evokes a feeling of glamour, luxury, and excitement for what’s inside. Seriously, what other boxes can make you feel that way? The legendary 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, the Tiffany Blue Box has become an international symbol of class, elegance, and sophistication, which reflects the brand and its products. 

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. For over a century, Tiffany’s loyal clientele has consistently seen flawless jewels and began associating the luxurious blue box with the highest quality standards. The Tiffany Blue color has been deeply embedded in today’s culture and remains traditional and exclusive to its origins.

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. Fun fact: All Tiffany Blue Boxes and bags are made with paper from sustainable sources and recycled materials!
