Beyoncé protagonist of the new Tiffany & Co. campaign “Lose Yourself in Love”
It was Mason Poole who photographed the star ambassador of the American jeweler recently acquired by LVMH.

Some copies will be marketed in an ultra-limited edition.
Funds scholarships for art students from black universities
In addition to these images, the campaign also recalls the existence of the jeweler’s social platform, Tiffany Atrium, in collaboration with Jay-Z and Beyoncé Carter. Together they finance scholarships, called ” Tiffany & Co. About love “. This academic aid is dedicated until 2024 to art students of historically black American universities (HBCU for” historically black colleges and universities “).
But it is above all the announcement of the release of a film based on his song ” SUMMER REBIRTH which excites Beyoncé fans.

Who can afford jewelry as crises escalate?
But who can afford Tiffany & Co. jewels today in France, concretely? If inflation threatens the finances of French men and women and beyond, it turns out that the personal luxury goods market has nonetheless experienced a spectacular rebound in 2021, surpassing its pre-2019 level by 3%. -pandemic, succession Le Figaro.
In this surprising context of growth, the jewelry market, valued at 22 billion euros, is particularly up 7% compared to 2019explains to the great national newspaper Mathilde Haemmerlé, partner in charge of the Luxury division at the consulting firm Bain & Company in Paris:
“This is a reassuring product category, which implies strong resilience. Before the crisis, China was the main growth engine, the United States from 2021 and Europe more recently are new driving forces. “
Gold, a safe haven and even damn profitable in times of crisis
Sales of watches and jewelry in France increased by 54% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same quarter of 2021 (Figure Ecostat), also highlights Le Figaro. A sign that gold, whose rating is only rising, remains a safe haven and also damn profitable, especially in times of crisis.
Regarding budget management, the Swedish financial and technical company for payment facilities Klarna has just published a study with interesting results:
” Almost 4 out of 5 French people save part of their income every month. As for the amount, more than 10% of the monthly income is set aside. The most common reasons to save are to afford a vacation (39% of Generation Z, 41% of Millennials, 36% of Generation X and 40% of Baby Boomers) or planning for retirement (33% of Millennials, 48% of Gen X and 35% of baby boomers). “
And contrary to popular belief, Generation Z saves more (18% of their income)therefore more than millennials (14%) and twice as many as generation X (10%) and baby boomers (9%), according to Klarna. It is also the younger generation who say they are most confident about their financial future: 44% of Zoomers (compared to 40% optimists among millennials, 23% among Gen X and 5% among baby boomers).
Faced with these figures put forward by Klarna, we can better understand the interest of attracting a younger audience for a luxury jeweler like Tiffany & Co. And nothing like Beyoncé to contribute to this. As Queen Bey herself sings in ” WARMED UP “,” I have a lot of style, I have a lot of Tiffany’s on me! “
“Buy now, pay later”: because the payment facilities are particularly indebted to young people
