What comes to mind when you think of Tiffany & Co.? Is it a luxe, sparkling engagement ring tucked inside a robin's egg blue box? Or an ordinary coffee can that you put on your desk and fill with assorted pens, pencils, and maybe a pair of scissors?
Well, you should actually start imagining both of these things, because the high-end jeweler now has a category on its website called "Everyday Objects" which, as you may have guessed, features household items with a ridiculously expensive price tag. In the market for a $450 sterling silver razor? Tiffany has you covered!
Coffee Can, $1,500
via: Tiffany & Co."This classic coffee can gets a Tiffany twist in sterling silver," says Tiffany's website. We'd honestly like to meet the insanely rich person who'd actually buy something that's this stupid and stupidly expensive.
Crazy Straw, $350
via: Tiffany & Co."This whimsical design is a fun and festive addition to the home." And by "crazy straw" they mean "isn't it crazy that this straw costs $350?"
Ice Cream Scoop, $375
via: Tiffany & Co."This household essential is reimagined in luxe materials." We're guessing the ice cream doesn't taste any different whether it's scooped with a $5 scooper or a $375 one. Or maybe it does. How would we know?
Table Tennis Paddles, $650
via: Tiffany & Co."Tiffany Blue® leather transforms these paddles into a luxurious alternative to the traditional style." We're really hoping these paddles come with private ping-pong lessons, because otherwise they're SO not worth it.
via: Tiffany & Co."Here, a traditional ruler is elevated in sterling silver." Tiffany's also offers a protractor and triangular ruler, each for around $400. So keep Tiff's in mind next time you're back-to-school shopping!
via: Tiffany & Co."Razor in sterling silver. 4.5" long. Original designs copyrighted by Elsa Peretti." We're not sure who Elsa Peretti is, but we're guessing she doesn't realize that you can get a pack of ten razors for less than $10 bucks at the supermarket.
Padova™ Bottle Opener, $200
via: Tiffany & Co."A great opening. Bottle opener in sterling silver." You'd need to buy some pretty cheap beer to make this purchase worth it financially, so what's the point?
Golf Tee, $175
via: Tiffany & Co."This timeless design is Tiffany to a tee." What happens to sterling silver when it's repeatedly whacked at full force with a golf club? We don't know, but we're guessing it's not good.
Paper Cup, $95
via: Tiffany & Co."The paper cup we use to serve coffee in Tiffany & Co. stores is reimagined in bone china." Ah, yes. The fun, casual vibe of a paper cup for the price of fine china. Just what we've been looking for!
Set of 10 Building Blocks, $1,500
via: Tiffany & Co."Mix and match numbered and lettered blocks for a unique and playful desk accessory." Think stepping on normal Legos is bad? Imagine stepping on THESE babies in the middle of the night.
Bird's Nest, $10,000
via: Tiffany & Co.And lastly, the pièce de résistance. "Woven from delicate strands of silver and housing three Tiffany Blue® blue porcelain eggs, this whimsical limited edition design was inspired by a 1969 engagement ad from the Tiffany Archives." A silver bird's nest with no apparent use for a whopping 10 grand. Thanks, Tiff!
