2. Tiffany & Co.
One should expect to be bedazzled by Tiffany & Co.’s holiday presentation. The store’s facade is like a giant piece of jewelry and its windows are no less stunning.
Illustrating the magic of giving a Tiffany present, the windows shimmer with light and focus on the famed Tiffany Blue Box. Designed by Gene Moore, one scene includes an engagement ring set on a hook and a mannequin ice fishing while another showcases figures sculpting ice. There’s also a Christmas tree decorated with diamonds and a mini Rockefeller Center, presented with a jewel-trimmed tree and Prometheus in gold leaf (images via Tiffany & Co.). The windows are on view through January 1.
