Color Of the Week - Tiffany Blue

I'm always amazed at how many different shades of a color there are. For instance blue. A couple of sources list 57 known shades of blue. I'm familiar with many of them, but a student introduced me to a new one, Tiffany Blue. It's his mother's favorite color.

Now I've seen this color before, but I didn't know the name of it. I also didn't know that the color, Tiffany Blue, is trademarked by Tiffany & Co. in the U.S. and some other jurisdictions. Tiffany Blue is a private custom color produced by Pantone. Whatever its name, it's a beautiful color.

For a wedding:

A kitchen:

A fabulous old door:

Even macaroons:

OK, maybe not macaroons. 

Giraffe #67 thinks his graduation cap and gown are Tiffany Blue. Even if they aren't, they still look good on this smart giraffe.
