The CEO is seeking ‘newness.’

Bloomberg reports that Tiffany & Co. has opened a “secret” New York workshop focused on innovation.

Jewelers there are developing prototypes of products the company hopes will fuel a burgeoning rebound. Bloomberg notes that Tiffany’s revenue grew more last quarter than it had in any other quarter over the past six years.

Alessandro Bogliolo, CEO of Tiffany, was quoted saying: “We should have newness throughout the year and in the different parts of our assortment.”

The Jewelry Design and Innovation Workshop profiled by Bloomberg is a 17,000-square-foot facility located in Manhattan. It opened its doors in April and is currently hiring for a variety of positions, including engineers and designers. 

So far, 50 people work at the workshop, with 30 more to be hired. The facility is a place where “representatives from merchandising, design and the prototyping center meet to discuss new projects,” Bloomberg explains.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

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!”
