In the new Return to Tiffany Love Bugs collection, Reed Krakoff turns to a technique that has already become partly a signature piece of natural jewelry. The petals of flowers, the wings of butterflies and dragonflies seem to be fastened together with a pin. Instead of pavé diamonds, they are engraved with "Please Return to Tiffany & Co.", and the lettering falls apart as if it were written on a piece of paper that was then torn into pieces. Indeed, the new Love Bugs line continues the well-known Return to Tiffany collection launched exactly 50 years ago. The very first engraving with a request to return the find to a jewelry brand boutique was made in 1969 on a key ring (the search for missing jewelry was carried out using the registration numbers of the products).

However, in the new collection there are items without inscriptions, but with large semi-precious stones: amethyst, sky blue topaz, yellow and green quartz. On transparent minerals, predominantly rectangular cut, you can see a tiny dragonfly, bee or ladybug. Rings, brooches, pendants, thin bracelets and stud earrings are made of three types of gold and sterling silver. “The Return to Tiffany Love Bugs collection is a new take on iconic jewelery, with a famous starting point but an unexpected ending,” commented creative director at Tiffany & Co.
