TIFFANY & CO. UNVEILS LIMITED EDITION T1 BRACELET AND BUST WITH DANIEL ARSHAM

This latest creative venture between Tiffany & Co. and contemporary artist Daniel Arsham debuts a limited-edition T1 bracelet and bust inspired by the artist’s Venus of Arles sculpture..



Tiffany & Co. has unveiled its latest creative venture with contemporary artist Daniel Arsham, debuting a limited-edition T1 bracelet and bust inspired by the artist’s bronze eroded Venus of Arles sculpture, currently on display at The Landmark. Uniting Arsham and Tiffany’s shared ideals of innovation, masterful craftsmanship and rebellious creativity, the partnership boasts a limited series of 186 custom T1 bracelets in 18k white gold with tsavorites and diamonds, paired with a mixed-medium bust of the artist’s sculpture. The unique number of pieces specifically made as a tribute to the 186th anniversary of artisanal excellence at Tiffany & Co.


The bronze eroded Venus of Arles sculpture is an expression of Arsham’s “Future Relics” aesthetic, where the artist recontextualizes contemporary objects through the lens of an imagined future.  The artist creates tension in time, achieved through the sculpture’s eroded quality and hand applied patina that is reminiscent of Tiffany Blue. The creation stemmed from Arsham’s visit to the Louvre’s archives where he was drawn to the statue, which dates to the 1st century. The sculpture was first featured at the Tiffany & Co. Vision & Virtuosity exhibition in 2022 at the Saatchi gallery in London. It currently is on display at The Landmark in New York City.


“The Amalgamated Bust of Venus of Arles brings together multiple Tiffany elements to tell a cohesive story about heritage, craftsmanship and artistry—all of which are very much part of Tiffany’s identity,” said Daniel Arsham. “There is the reference to the sculpture on display at The Landmark, and there is the tsavorite T1 bracelet, which one discovers upon opening the sculpture.”


A talisman of strength, Tiffany T1 represents individual courage and power, worn outwardly to express what lies within. This exclusive 18k white gold T1 bracelet is set by hand with 105 diamonds totaling over 1 carat and over 74 tsavorites totaling over 2 total carats. The verdant hue of tsavorite—a vivid green Tiffany legacy gemstone that the House proudly introduced to the world in 1974—hints at both the color of the sculpture’s patina and the Arsham Studio color. This heritage of discovery aligns with the aesthetic vocabulary of Arsham’s future “discoveries.”


The amalgamated bust of Venus of Arles within which the T1 bangle is encased, arrives within a custom-made Tiffany Blue® art-handling crate with metal hardware. An additional Blue Box holds dual-branded white handling gloves. The bust and accompanying limited-edition T1 bracelet will be available around the world this December.
