Deep In The Dog House? Tiffany & Co. Just Dropped A $200,000 Advent Calendar

Tiffany Co 2021 Advent Calendar Jean Michel Basquiat

It’s that time of year again, folks. We’re roughly 50 sleeps away from Christmas, which means Mariah Carey + Michael Buble can begin to defrost, wishlists start compiling, and of course, Tiffany & Co unveils yet another ridiculous advent calendar for 2021. In keeping with their latest “About Love” campaign fronted by Beyonce and Jay-Z, this particular edition of the famed jeweller’s limited-edition release also features Jean-Michael Basquiat’s 1982 painting Equals Pi – and will, of course, set you back a considerable US$150,000 / AU$200,000.

Handcrafted from white oak in New York – i.e. Tiffany’s seat of power – the four-foot cabinet houses 24 boxes in the brand’s signature blue, each one labelled by a numbered tag and filled with opulent delights, “including designs from Tiffany HardWear, Tiffany T1, and Elsa Peretti.” While the specific contents of said boxes have yet to be revealed, previous iterations have included the following (all currency referenced = USD):

  • Tiffany T Extra Large Smile Pendant in 18K Rose Gold w/ Diamonds ($7,000)

The cynics out there will be interested to hear this Christmas-time endeavour won’t be entirely about profit, either. According to Robb Report, Tiffany & Co has pledged to make a US$250,000 / AU$334,850 donation from the sales of its 2021 Advent Calendar to Free Arts NYC – a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing art and mentoring programs to youth from underserved communities.
