Jewelry Maker Pandora Has No Plans To Join Platforms Like Amazon or Farfetch 

Jewelry maker Pandora would prefer to invest in physical stores or its own online sales platform rather than join large e-commerce marketplaces like Amazon or Farfetch.

Alexander Lacik, CEO, Pandora said: "If you're a small and unknown brand, marketplaces offer a great opportunity, because they provide you with an audience. I already have an audience."

Pandora, the world's largest jewelry maker by production capacity (reportedly), has found a niche between cheaper accessories sold by the likes of H&M and more expensive jewelry like that of Tiffany & Co.

"Eight out of ten women globally are aware of our brand, so I don't need to make you aware of me. What I need to do is to show you what I've got, and I can do this much better if I have a direct relationship with my customer," Lacik further said.

The $12.3 billion company, headquartered in Copenhagen, has increased investment in e-commerce during the pandemic. It is present on China's T-mall platform but not on large global platforms like Amazon or Farfetch.

"Marketplaces always have to make a compromise for all the clients they are serving. I don't have to compromise," he said.

Currently, Pandora's more than 2,600 physical stores remain the core of its business and still account for 75 percent of global sales.
