    Francesca Amfitheatrof for Tiffany & Co.: Francesca Amfitheatrof has designed and created jewelry for a multitude of companies. Alessi, Chanel, Ozbek, Asprey, Garrard, Wedgewood and Marni are among the luxury brands on which she has put her mark. In 2014, after a five-year search, she became the Director of Design for Tiffany, the first-ever female to hold the title. Her tenure was paved with wildly successful assemblages. One year after she joined Tiffany, her first collection “Tiffany T” was launched. Collections to follow were “Victoria Bows & Infinity“ (2015), “Return to Love” (2016), “1837” (2017), ”Collectibles” (2017) and “Sweet Nothings” (2017). Amfitheatrof's Tiffany pieces worn by Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, and Jessica Biel were recognized on the Academy Awards red carpet three years in a row. Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Garner are also fans of Amfitheatrof’s Tiffany designs. Her last collection, “Tiffany HardWear Jewelry Collection” (2017) featured Lady Gaga in the advertising campaign. She repositioned Tiffany’s Blue Book creations of haute joaillerie, creating 250 unique pieces. The collections were titled “The Art of the Sea” (2015), “The Art of Transformation” (2016) and “The Art of The Wild” (2017).
