Gaga for Tiffany

In a surprise move, New York jeweller Tiffany & Co announces Lady Gaga as the face of the new City HardWear jewellery line.


Just in time for the Super Bowl, Tiffany has revealed Lady Gaga will front a new line of silver and gold jewellery called City HardWear. Lady Gaga joins more-mainstream Legendary Style leading ladies that include Christy Turlington, Lupita Nyong’o and Elle Fanning.

The highlight of the campaign is a 60-second film that will debut during the Super Bowl on 5 February - an unprecedented move to choose such a mainstream event to launch a collection. Though Tiffany has created the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the past 50 years, this is the first time the house appears in a Super Bowl advertisement, making this a doubly controversial move.

The highlight of the campaign is a 60-second film starring Lady Gaga that will debut during the Super Bowl on 5 February, which shows glimpses of Tiffany's new City HardWear jewels on the singer.

The new earrings, rings, bracelets and pendants are inspired by archive drawings from 1971 of a unisex bracelet. The jewels are glimpsed on Lady Gaga as she stretches out, totally relaxed on the floor as she discusses style, creativity and her views on Tiffany.  The campaign was shot by David Sims and created in association with Grace Coddington, of US Vogue fame, and the flame-haired foil to editor Anna Wintour.

The film, a teaser of which can be seen below, features Lady Gaga talking spontaneously and unscripted about her love of Tiffany jewels:

“In New York, you're born knowing that Tiffany is the best, and that it is where the magic happens. The brand is definitive and iconic, yet continues to push and evolve with the times,” said Lady Gaga. “To me, Tiffany represents timeless American jewelry.”

Caroline Naggiar, chief brand officer of Tiffany & Co, says: “For more than 180 years, the world’s chicest women have chosen Tiffany jewelry as a powerful expression of who they are. “This campaign celebrates Tiffany’s rich legacy and the modernity of Tiffany style. Lady Gaga, and her originality, creativity and courage, reflects the spirit of this collection.”

Given the sudden departure of former design director Francesca Amfitheatrof, this radical news suggests we may be seeing more changes from this American jeweller.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
