First BLUSH • On a 1910 sourcing expedition to Madagascar, Tiffany & Co.’s chief gemologist George Kunz discovered a new stone, a cousin to emerald and aquamarine tinted Turkish delight pink.

(A new sibling handshake between LVMH’s two premier jewelers, perhaps.) Amid a gemstone rainbow, the warm pink stands out for its ability to offset the crispness of brilliant-cut diamonds, as shown here in the house’s trademark Serpenti earrings. Surely, Mr. Morgan would approve.

It’s how you dress yourself.” There is merit to having a signature perfume—an aide-mémoire that lingers in your absence—but a cache of design-minded fragrances makes the case for a sartorial array. Here, six tastemakers riff on their creations, imagining which clothing item best reflects what’s worn on the wrist.
