Biographical profile of Charles Lewis Tiffany, jeweler, silversmith and founder of Tiffany & Co., one of the world's foremost producers of fine jewelery. Known as the "King of Diamonds," Tiffany developed the English standard for sterling silver, and created America's first retail catalog. Although his son, Louis, developed the glass art, window and lamps that are so famous today, it was Charles who set in motion and developed the company that made American silversmiths and goldsmiths the equal of the best Europe had to offer. Today Tiffany is the standard of excellence, all brought about through the hard work of its founding pioneer. Award-winning author and syndicated columnist Daniel Alef brings out the remarkable life and times of Tiffany. [1,425-word Titans of Fortune article]
