A PALMER hit list of what’s new, now, and next from around the globe—from our obsessive-at-large, Wynn Burson Cateron.

In Henry Leutwyler: The Tiffany Archives, the Swiss photographer takes showstopping portraits of individual pieces of jewelry, objects, and ephemera — much of which has never been seen — for the company’s actual archive, and presents the rarest of diamonds and remarkable objects that reveal the true stories from the brand’s legendary past, especially exploring its dedication to craftsmanship and connection to pop culture. From an American uncut diamond to Art Deco bracelets, and the earliest little blue box to an Elsa Peretti perfume bottle, the most special pieces that comprise Tiffany’s heritage come out of the vault in this gem of a book.
