12 Fancy Alternatives to the $450 Tiffany & Co. Ruler

The sterling silver and American walnut Tiffany ruler costs $450.

You may have chuckled at the news about Tiffany’s “Everyday Objects” collection, in which designer Reed Krakoff reimagined mundane things — golf tees, tin cans, paper coffee cups — as luxury objects. Well, Tiffany’s the one laughing now, as holiday sales of the Everyday Objects buoyed the company’s stock yesterday. And one of the most popular items (it’s still sold out) was Tiffany’s sterling-silver ruler, which measures a mere six inches and will set you back $450. If you’re looking for a substitute — or if that much for a half-foot piece of silver and American walnut strikes you as insane — consider some of these fancier rulers below, none of which will cost more than $100.
