One of my all-time favorite Tiffany lines is the sweet Elsa Peretti Bean collection. I’m not sure of the significance of the bean (something about the origin of all things), but to me, it’s just a reminder of my youngest daughter’s nickname (Bean). Perhaps that’s why I’ve spent more than I care to mention building her collection of the Elsa Peretti Bean line from Tiffany… it’s an investment, right? And something she’s sure to appreciate as she gets older… and stops letting me call her Bean. Here are 7 darling pieces from the Elsa Peretti Bean collection…
1 Elsa Peretti Bean Bracelet
How pretty! This 18-karat yellow gold bracelet is studded with bright blue lapis lazuli beads (or rather, beans). Each bean measures 9 millimeters wide, and the delicate bracelet is 7½ inches long with a spring-ring clasp.
2 Elsa Peretti Bean Locket
I love the idea of giving lockets as gifts to loved ones, with a picture of us together on the inside. This locket, made of bright sterling silver, would make an ideal gift for my own little Bean. It measures 25 millimeters long and inside is Tiffany Blue felt. It hangs on a dainty 30-inch chain.
3 Elsa Peretti Bean Necklace
What a striking statement necklace! Three large beans, made of Japanese hardwood and lacquered in brilliant yellow gold, are suspended on an adjustable 35¾-inch black silk cord. Wear this with your favorite LBD, or to dress up a pair of leggings and a tunic. It’s very adult, very sophisticated.
4 Elsa Peretti Bean Bracelet
One singular, shiny bean dangles from a bright sterling silver bracelet, the ultimate charm for my little girl. The bracelet measures 7½ inches long, so it will fit most wrists, and closes with a spring-ring clasp.
5 Elsa Peretti Bean Earrings
These tiny sterling silver studs would make an ideal gift for a little girl! They’re made for pierced ears, and each perfect little bean measures 9 millimeters wide. They’re so darling! Give them as a gift for a christening or first communion, to represent the start of life.
6 Elsa Peretti Bean Pendant
Declare your admiration and understanding of the symbol by wearing it proudly, on this necklace. The pendant is made of 18-karat yellow gold, strung through the middle on a matching 18-inch chain. The bean measures 20 millimeters across, and is so elegant and lovely!
7 Elsa Peretti Bean Cuff Links
Look, it’s a pair of green beans! I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun… give the gift of good fortune with these cuff links, made of green jade set in sterling silver. They’re also available in lapis lazuli or plain silver, and all three are gorgeous!
With so many darling pieces to choose from, there’s bound to be a Bean for you… or your daughter! Which of these pieces from the Elsa Peretti Bean collection do you like best, and why? Please share!
