New York--Tiffany & Co. has opened its flagship store on Champs-Élysées, the Parisian avenue known worldwide for its high-end shopping.

The 10,675 square-foot, three-floor store is located in a corner building and carries the brand’s high, fashion and fine jewelry, accessories and sunglasses, Women’s Wear Daily reported Tuesday.

Tiffany will celebrate the store’s opening by hosting the Tiffany Diamond, originally cut in Paris in the 19th century, for a limited period of time in the store’s library, located on the top floor. The brand also will reveal a number of exclusive high jewelry pieces in honor of the opening. 

The store is Tiffany’s fourth point of sale in Paris and is designed to increase the brand’s visibility in Europe. The New York-based jewelry retailer first announced plans Élysées store in late 2012.

Other jewelry stores on Champs-Élysées include Cartier and Dior Joaillerie. The avenue also offers cinemas, cafes and luxury specialty shops.
