Tiffany NFTiff Unveils Cryptopunk NFT Necklaces at 30 ETH Each
Exclusive to CryptoPunks holders, NFTiff by Tiffany turns NFT into pendants at 30 ETH each with 250 limited editions, which will go on sale on Aug. 5.
Tiffany & Co., one of the most recognizable names in luxury goods for over a century, is launching a collection of non-fungible token (NFTs).
The jeweler tweeted out a video of a pixelated grid hinting at its upcoming sale, set to begin August 5: NFTiff.
The tweet also specified a price of 30 Ethereum (just over $51,000 at today’s price).
An image shared by the influential NFT trader Cozomo de’ Medici pointed to a description of NFTiffs that specified the offering would be a series of digital and physical pendants, made for the owners of Cryptopunks that would resemble the NFTs they already own.
The website the tweet links to says the offering will have a limited supply of 250. The NFTiffs, the first NFT product offered by Tiffany & Co., are being introduced after the company has flirted with diving deeper into Web3 for months.
In March, Tiffany & Co. ventured into the NFT space for the first time with its purchase of an Okapi NFT from Tom Sachs. The luxury goods retailer reportedly purchased the NFT for $380,000 and has since set it as the company’s profile picture on twitter.
The next month it dropped TiffCoins, a series of limited-edition gold coins that debuted on April Fools’ Day. The solid gold coins were limited to a total of 499 in production and were individually engraved.
“No, we’re not launching our own cryptocurrency,” Tiffany & Co. stated on its website. “But these very real limited-release 18k gold coins are a modern version of our Tiffany Money and celebration of our history.”
In April, Tiffany & Co. also created a pendant for Alexandre Arnault, the company’s executive vice president of products and communications, featuring a portrait of CryptoPunk #3167, which he owns. It is made of rose gold set with sapphires, rubies and yellow diamonds.
The page for NFTiffs has a statement at the bottom claiming it’s “powered by Chain,” a blockchain-based technology company founded in 2014 that has received funding from Visa, Nasdaq and Capital One, among others.
