Despite the economic recession, Tiffany & Co. has announced plans to open a new fine jewelry store in Amsterdam in the fall. The 195 square meter fine jewelry store will be located in a historic building at 86-88 PC Hooftstraat, in the city's leading shopping area.
Tiffany noted that it will strive to preserve the building's original fa?ade while creating a modern and gracious interior to showcase Tiffany’s collections including an array of diamond jewelry and the signature designs of Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, Jean Schlumberger and Frank Gehry.
Melvyn Kirtley, Group Vice President, Tiffany & Co. Europe, noted: "Opening our first fine jewelry store in Amsterdam is another indication of our optimism about Tiffany's substantial long-term growth potential throughout Europe. Our prominent location in Amsterdam's most desirable shopping area provides us with the ideal environment for introducing everyone to Tiffany's heritage of design, craftsmanship and outstanding service."
