Tiffany & Co. is looking beyond its core jewelry business to buoy overall sales, partnering with Reed Krakoff to design a new gift, home and accessories collection, Luxury Daily writes.

“A heritage brand, such as Tiffany, must continue to evolve to remain relevant to its core and prospective customers,” Rebecca Miller, CEO of Miller & Company, told the fashion news outlet. “It is a natural progression for a brand to expand beyond its core products to those products that serve as a natural extension of the brand.”

The article also mentions Tiffany’s recent partnership with Grace Coddington, the former creative director of American Vogue magazine, to lead a new ad campaign featuring several “iconic” jewelry collections. “This relationship signals the brand’s intent and understanding that the world of jewelry, which is underperforming at all levels, needs to begin to reach out and find disruptive ways to create an edge in the market. Capitalizing on the fashion world’s constant motion by using designers in fashion that are modern may help to hit the right note with millennials,” Miller added.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
