We’ve all loved a timeless necklace, bracelet or ring from Tiffany & Co. That eggshell blue box is a surely a classic, but their new home & accessories line kinda has us scratching our heads. From outrageously priced paper clips to tin cans that cost more than our laptops, we’re thinking most of us will not be clicking that ‘add to shopping bag’ button on these ‘everyday objects.’ Here are some of our favourite items we will most certainly judge you for buying.
10 ridiculous items you will probably never buy at Tiffany & Co.

tin canI know, I know, you already have a two thousand dollar can. But this one has a vermeil interior. (Insider tip: If you really wanted a tin can pencil holder, might we suggest picking up some 2-for-1 beans at your local dollar store?)
