Tiffany & Co. Presents Its Iconic Tennis Trophies at the 2021 US Open®
NEW YORK, NY — Tiffany & Co. is proud to present for the 34th year in a row its legendary US Open® Singles and Doubles Championship Trophies that the House first designed in 1987 and has handcrafted at its hollowware workshop ever since.
The elegant Singles Championship Trophy—awarded on Saturday, September 11 to Emma Raducanu—weighs 10 pounds and stands 18 inches in height. During her stellar performance, Raducanu wore Tiffany Victoria® earrings, Tiffany T1 bracelet and ring, and a Tiffany cross pendant.
Tiffany’s master artisans at its Cumberland, Rhode Island workshop employ age-old techniques such as spinning, silversmithing, chasing, hand engraving and polishing to create the trophy over a course of approximately six months for a total of 66 hours of labor. The league’s previous name, “The United States Lawn Tennis Association”—used from 1881 until 1975—and the full name of the US Open®, “The United States Open Tennis Championship” are both engraved on the front. The champions’ names are engraved on the back.
Tiffany also creates the US Open® Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles Bowl each year. Having debuted alongside the Single’s Championship Trophy in 1987, these legendary tennis trophies are each a sophisticated tribute to the tournament and illustrious symbols of Tiffany’s world-renowned craftsmanship.
