Since 1974, Tiffany has been the only licensee for Elsa Peretti designs. As per the contract Tiffany is to make a one-time payment of $47 million to Peretti and the latter is also to receive royalties and fees related to the licensed jewelry.
Randal Konik, a Jefferies analyst states that Elsa Peretti jewelry accounts for about 10% of Tiffany’s sales, and that this new agreement is a positive move for the New York jewelry chain as this removes the uncertainty of company losing the exclusive license.
