The initial and most striking scene in the film is the moment when Holly Golightly, a character played by Audrey Hepburn, admires a showcase at the Tiffany’s store located on 5th Avenue while having breakfast. Just like the character, many women at some point in their lives have wished for a Tiffany’s jewel, be it a necklace or the famous solitaire diamond rings.
“Nothing very bad could happen to you there” is what the character Holly Golightly
says when she enters the luxurious Tiffany’s store and looks at the jewelry in the windows. This reinforces how the store is a pleasant, exclusive and beautiful place to visit and shop. The character played by Audrey Hepburn is a dreamy woman who wants luxurious things, this includes jewelry. A diamond jewel is every woman’s dream, especially if it is rich in details like those of Tiffany’s.
Currently you can have your day as Holly, this is because this store in which the movie appears is located in The Blue Box Cafe for you to have your breakfast and of course take the opportunity to enjoy and buy jewelry.

Throughout the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the character wears several jewels from the most discreet to the most exuberant that mark the passage of scenes. The necklace she saw on Tiffany’s wasn’t used in the movie, but was used during its promotion. Tiffany’s yellow diamond is one of the most sophisticated and largest in the world and was found in 1877 in South Africa. The diamond was used only on four occasions and on one occasion it was placed on the Ribbon Rosette necklace by designer Jean Schlumberger. The high-value jewel was used by Audrey Hepburn very elegantly, complementing the look and eternalizing the figure of the character in the film.
With more than 200 years in the market, Tiffany’s will always be considered a legend in the world of jewelry. Mainly because of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but also because of the experience of being in the store and having a jewel with the famous blue box forever.
