1837: Tiffany and Co. is founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and Teddy Young in New York City as Tiffany, Young and Ellis. The store is called a "stationery and fancy goods emporium." The name would be shortened to Tiffany & Co. in 1853 when Charles Tiffany took control, and the firm's emphasis on jewelry was established.
