Tiffany & Co. announced the debut of an exclusive Tiffany & Co. x Andy Warhol limited-edition collection inspired by the artist’s holiday greeting cards created for the jeweler during the 1950s and ’60s when Warhol was regarded as one of the most successful commercial illustrators in New York City.
