Not to be outdone by the U.S. Open’s partnership with Tiffany & Co., the Wimbledon organizers join the luxury licensing fray by announcing their Wimbledon Jewellery collection.
Indian outfit Gitanjali Gems secured three-year license to promote and market jewelry under the Wimbledon brand. To begin their efforts, the company presented a diamond-encrusted 24-carat-gold tennis ball to Roger Federer. The ball’s valued at Rs 35 lakhs (approx. $90,000).
No word on when the collection will be available for sale. As soon as I find out, I’ll let you know.
