Try it. Like it. Tell your friends about it. That’s how word of mouth advertising works. Still the most prized form of marketing, it was relied on even more heavily back in the days before commercials. To increase the number of prospective happy customers purchasing wares, collaborations between companies were common. Two otherwise dissimilar companies would team up to create a product both could sell and voila! An increase in advertising without increasing costs.
It is just such a collaboration that birthed The Tiffanys Pocket Knife necklace. In the early 1900s, Tiffany & Co joined forces with the popular Empire Knife Company and the result is this unique piece of jewelry. Though there were likely some who doubted the prudence of such an unlikely pairing, it cannot be denied that the partnership was sure to draw the attention of their clientele. Certain to catch the eye and spark conversations, this 18K gold and stainless steel necklace is perfect for anyone looking for a dash of the unexpected in their adornment.
