The jewelry maker is taking a different marketing angle.

The recently launched advertising campaign from Tiffany & Co. highlights the 130th anniversary of its notable “Tiffany” ring setting – the same setting that’s the subject of a lawsuit that the jewelry maker filed against Costco in 2013, CultureMap Houston writes.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M.
