Tiffany & Co supports saving the corals

Tiffany's ocean-themed windows seek
to inform the public about
corals and marine-life

The next time you pass by a Tiffany store window, take the time to admire the window displays of an ocean floor view.

As part of its initiative to preserve the environment, the luxe jeweller has committed itself to selling items of "sustainable style" - that means jewellery made with no threat to natural resources.

Tiffany also supports SeaWeb, a nonprofit organization and its Too Precious to Wear campaign, which educates consumers and retailers about coral conservation. They have also stopped selling coral jewellery since 2002.

So you can be assured you're not killing off a precious resource the next time you bring a little blue box back from the jeweller.
