Scorpio and Hot Diamonds announce travel retail agreement

The agreement, which is already in effect, covers both in-flight and retail shops worldwide, excluding Asia where agreements already exist.

Group sales and marketing director for Scorpio, Richard Kennedy, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be taking on the Hot Diamonds collection which perfectly complements our existing jewellery offer, headed by the ever popular Pierre Cardin brand.

“The Hot Diamonds brand is already well established in travel retail and has an excellent track record. We believe, however, that there is far more potential for the brand and certainly initial reaction to the line at the Duty Free Show of the Americas proved that to be the case.”

International accounts manager for Hot Diamonds, Paul Collard, said: “We believe that Scorpio is the ideal Duty Free partner for us, as their outstanding coverage of the Travel Retail and In-Flight sales channels is second to none.

“Also, their keen eye for excellent branding has been instrumental in our decision to form a partnership with them. We are looking forward to working closely with Scorpio to replicate the Hot Diamonds UK successes into the global market.”

Retailing between $50 and $114 (£32 – £72), Hot Diamonds describes its collection as “distinctive, contemporary jewellery designs and mid-way price points.”
