Tiffany to open store in Pasadena

Tiffany & Co. plans to open a store in Pasadena, Calif., in fall 2005, the company said in a statement. The 5,600 sq.-ft. store will be located at 64 West Colorado Boulevard, the corner of Colorado Boulevard and De Lacey Avenue in Old Pasadena, one of southern California’s top retail districts.

The store design complements Old Pasadena’s Mission and Spanish style architecture that is reminiscent of the city’s historic buildings, and will incorporate Tiffany’s famed Atlas clock in a landmark tower that stands at the corner location. Other exterior details include limestone entry arches and ornamental gates and show windows with original metalwork details like those of Tiffany’s New York flagship store. The interior features a series of intimate salons with Makore wood panels and stainless steel framed showcases.

The store will offer an array of renowned Tiffany collections, including the jeweler’s engagement diamonds and jewels of ultimate glamour in platinum and 18k gold settings; rare pearls; fashion jewelry; watches; and the signature designs of Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, and Jean Schlumberger.
