Ladies, you are my last resort for Tiffany boxes/ring boxes

I should put this posting on AIBU, except I think it's being exploited enough as it is. Does anyone know where to get empty Tiffany boxes, both ring boxes and the blue ones? It's for an art installation. Naively, I thought I could just pick them up from the shop, but no, it's not possible. I've tried Hatton Garden as well. Where do all these boxes go?

How can it be illegal to sell a box?
Even if they're copyright, you can still sell on something that belongs to you.
They didn't make me sign a waiver or disclaimer when I bought jewellery there. hmm

Read where? Illegal to sell any empty boxes or just Tiffany ones? confused
Ebay Lookalikes, if this is of any use to you.

Illegal to sell boxes??!! Tiffany are paying their lawyers too much. Need real thing unfortunately or completely change my "year in the planning idea".

Very good reason why they won't sell them to you. There are so many fakes on eBay that come with a box to give authenticity. I think you should rethink your art fake tiffany jewellery business installation.

I've been stung by this on ebay before - if they don't pick up the auction of any designer boxes whilst it's running it is cancelled retrospectively causing all sorts of hassle. Gumtree or buy off mn......

weird. Never thought boxes would be contentious. What about H. Samuel [Wink]

if only I had a fake jewellery biz!

GypsyMoth Fri 27-May-11 21:36:25

look,op,there is only one thing for it....you will HAVE to just buy the jewellery. but dont worry,i will have it!! you just keep the boxes...grin

splodge2001 Fri 27-May-11 21:52:52

I read it here I meant an illegal listing rather than you house would be surrounded by police with loud hailers.
