The world's most famous jewellery house has finally crossed the ditch, opening its first ever New Zealand store in Auckland's luxe shopping mecca, Britomart.

They're famous for their little blue boxes, but Tiffany & Co. marked the occasion with an extraordinarily BIG blue box, positioned outside the beautiful stone flagship. Standing at 12-metres high, it contained over 800 individual Tiffany Blue Bow Boxes inside.

The entire surrounds were bathed in Tiffany Blue light for the cocktail affair, with Tiffany Blue ice-creams and New York-inspired cocktails for guests, in homage to the original Tiffany store.

The celebrity guest list included Shanina Shaik, Hannah Bronfman, Georgia Alice, Trelise Cooper and Jaime Ridge.
