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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
