Hamburg, Germany, is now on the list of cities set to open a new Tiffany & Co. The diamond and jewellery retailer announced its new store would open mid-year 2007 with approximately 2,400 square feet of retail space near Neuer Wall 19. Along with its platinum jewellery at the new store, it said it would also offer an array of its engagement diamonds and other jewels. Signature designs in a range of metals by Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, Jean Schlumberger, and Frank Gehry will also be included. Cesare Settepassi, vice president, Tiffany & Co Europe said, “We are quite pleased to be opening a store in the elegant port city of Hamburg. Our unique designs, exquisite quality and highly rated customer service will be quite at home in this stylish, cosmopolitan city.”
When open, it will be the third Tiffany’s store to appear in Germany. Hamburg is Germany’s second-largest city behind Berlin. Hamburg today is an elegant, modern city and a cultural centre, widely known for its opera, theatres, magazine and book-publishing houses, radio and television broadcasting centres, and film studios. The luxury retailer also has stores in Frankfurt and Munich.
