Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) has used the same 925/1000 standard for silver purity — a standard later adopted by the United States government — since 1851. Today, Tiffany sells silver bracelets, necklaces, piggy banks, and pill boxes, among other items. In fiscal 2011, 69% of Tiffany’s silver came from the Bingham Canyon Mine in Utah, while the remaining 31% came from recycled sources. According to Tiffany & Co. SEC filings, the company currently produces silver goods in New York, Kentucky and Rhode Island, while silver hollowware is produced in New Jersey.
