Luxury jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. has opened a store in Ho Chi Minh City, two years after opening its first in Vietnam in Hanoi.

The store in District 1, which had a soft opening last week, is part of a strategy by the 186-year-old jeweler to increase its presence in Asia after being acquired by France’s LVMH in 2021.

The store is run directly by the company as against the Hanoi one, which is operated by a distributor, Nikkei reported.

HCMC had the ninth fastest growth rate globally in the number of millionaires last year, according to residence and citizenship advisory firm Henley and Partners.

Vietnam’s biggest city saw their numbers rise by 84% to 7,700 individuals, it said in its 2023 World’s Wealthiest Cities Report.

As of last year HCMC had 15 people with a net worth of $100 million and three billionaires.

It is ranked the 67th wealthiest city in the world.
