This little picture almost made me fall out of my seat. I am seriously in disbelief that this Tiffany & Co. silver heart tag bracelet is now $245!!!!! When I was in college, this bracelet retailed for $90. I bought it for myself and wore it for years. In 1998 when I started working at Tiffany, the price was $110. A few months in, the price increased to $125.
This bracelet was so popular during the 4 years I worked there, we spent most of our down time pre-wrapping them so we always had them on hand. We sold anywhere from 20-75 a day. It got to a point where I was wondering who was left in Miami that didn't already own one. At some point, the price went up to $135 and I was horrified but it didn't stop the sales. I left the store in 2002 and even though the price of silver has certainly gone up, I am feeling sorry for the teenagers who will have to save so much longer to afford this little bracelet!!!
These days, mine is gold and in my usual fashion, I cannot decide on a monogram to get it engraved, so the heart dangles free and clear of a fancy kPa. Maybe I was thinking if I waited long enough, I could put my married initials on it..that must be it.!
