FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Jewelry-maker Tiffany & Co. will expand its Lexington manufacturing facility, adding 75 new jobs.

The expansion comes about a year and half after Tiffany began making jewelry in Lexington. The company already employs 125 workers in Lexington.

Tiffany Senior Vice President of Operations and Manufacturing John Petterson announced the expansion on Thursday.

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $1.5 million to help with the cost of the expansion.
