Tiffany to Open Store in Brussels

Tiffany & Co. announced plans to open a store in Brussels, Belgium, in fall 2008. The approximately 2,100 square-foot store will occupy a prominent location at Boulevard de Waterloo 66, the city’s premier street for luxury shopping.

“As center of the European Union and the capital of Belgium, we consider Brussels an exciting new market for Tiffany,” said Cesare Settepassi, vice president, Tiffany & Co. Europe. “Our prime location at Boulevard de Waterloo positions us to introduce our heritage of quality, craftsmanship and superior service to residents and visitors.”

The jeweler will offer Tiffany & Co. collections, including diamond engagement rings and jewels in platinum and 18k gold settings; pearls; the signature designs of Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, Jean Schlumberger, and Frank Gehry; watches; accessories; and gifts.

This will be the jeweler’s first store in Belgium.
