Tiffany & Co. notched sales of $4.4 billion in 2018.

It says 92% of its turnover from the world-wide sale of jewellery. The remaining 8% is made up from timepieces, home and accessories, and fragrances.

The group has more than 300 stores around the world, which could provide a route to market for other LVMH brands including TAG Heuer, Hublot, Zenith and even Bulgari.
