Little blue boxes have been the hallmark of fine jewelry (and objets d'art) ever since Charles Lewis Tiffany first opened his doors in New York City in 1837. Now a cultural touchstone, Tiffany's has at last come to Tucson, apparently due to some kind of crazy market research suggesting that there are people here who would pay $2,000 for a charm bracelet. But here's something you didn't know: Charles Lewis Tiffany still runs the company! Kept "alive" by a constant infusion of orphan cortexes, the zombified Tiffany is so obsessed with quality, he refuses to shuffle off the ol' mortal coil. But such quality comes at a price. Sweet zombie Jesus, does it come at a price! As you tote your blue box(es) home after your purchase at Tucson's co-home of Best Commercial Jewelry, remember--it might put the squeeze on your Black AmEx to have shopped in such an exclusive redoubt, but no jeweler in history cares more about quality. In the immortal words of the founder, "GGGAAAAHCCHCH!"
