The phrase more money, more problems would not have sat well with upper-class early-20th-century New Yorkers, who flaunted their wealth in the form of jewelry, furs and elaborate houses. This exhibit, the first in the newly christened Tiffany & Co. Foundation Jewelry Gallery, displays 100 glamorous costumes, portraits and household objects, including a silver-gilt place setting and an “Electric Light” dress owned by the Vanderbilt family, John D. Rockefeller's luxe toiletry set, and loads of diamond, gold and platinum bling.
