Robb Recommends: Tiffany’s Enchanting High-Jewelry Necklace Conjures the Sea

The latest addition to Tiffany & Co.’s 2021 Colors of Nature lineup is inspired by a well-trod subject—the sea—but delivers a playful new take on the perennial jewelry motif. The plunging, 31-inch platinum chain drips with over seven carats of baguette-cut diamonds and more than 43 carats of baguette-cut sapphires, with ombré color variations between the gems adding depth and richness, meticulously arranged like a string of ribbon. A massive 43-carat green tourmaline, encircled by yet more baguette-cut diamonds, punctuates the piece. “The gradual transition from sapphires to diamonds guides the eye around the chain, leading to the beautiful green tourmaline,” says Victoria Wirth Reynolds, Tiffany’s chief gemologist and vice president for high jewelry. Look closely and you’ll also discover four 18-karat-gold staples, subtle touches that elegantly tie the piece together—proof that, with expert execution, stepping outside the box needn’t require a leap.

Drake Gets Some Watch Inspiration from [Checks Notes] Queen Elizabeth II

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities. Paul Newman, Eric Clapton, John Mayer—there are plenty of north stars to look towards when shaping a watch collection. Here’s a new one, courtesy of the Certified Lover Boy: Queen Elizabeth II. Last weekend, Drake posted an image of himself on Instagram wearing a rare version of the Patek Philippe Ellipse with a diamond-set bezel. The next slide in the rapper’s story was his apparent inspiration for acquiring the piece: the Queen herself, sitting for a 1984 portrait while wearing the same Patek. Rap royalty meets real-life royalty. Drake is onto something here, because the watch world needs new icons. Many collectors gravitate towards the same models, which means they’re all trying to buy the same watches, like the Patek Nautilus, Rolex Daytona, or Rolex Submariner. So next time you go watch shopping, maybe look towards the protagonists from Aliens, or Hamilton Pulsar-owner Sammy Davis Jr. Or do like Drake and look towards the UK monarchy.

How Dave Grohl and Neil Diamond Helped Tenacious D Record Their Debut

The comedy rock duo Tenacious D was already delighting fans and fellow musicians alike, years before their 2001 debut album. "We were like the most indie of all," Jack Black told Rolling Stone, recalling the period when he and Kyle Gass were appearing on HBO in Tenacious D: The Greatest Band on Earth. "We don’t even have a record label, that’s how indie our record label is — it doesn’t exist! Our music is in the air, or on the videotapes. We went to Seattle, and Eddie Vedder came to one of our shows before we had a record. He was just fucking there."
