No, we’re not talking about the new Netflix series…though we do love it.
We’re actually talking about the former Tiffany & Co. vice president, Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, that has just plead guilty to stealing $2.1 million dollars in jewelry over a number of years. Apparently, Lederhass-Okun checked out the jewelry by claiming the product as lost or damaged and would sell the product to a Manhattan jewelry dealer. According to Women’s Wear Daily, her haul was over 165 pieces including diamond bracelets, platinum diamond rings, gold diamond drop earrings and more.
Though she faced charges that could potentially have gotten her up to 20 years in prison, her guilty plead means that the former Tiffany & Co. executive is only looking at up to 46 months in prison as well as the need to pay Tiffany & Co. $2.2 million dollars in restitution. With Dolce & Gabanna heading behind bars and now Ingrid Lederhass-Okun, jail is starting to look a little like an exclusive V.I.P club for fashion powerhouses.
