Last week’s trivia answer

Founded in New York City in 1837, I began publishing my “Blue Book,” America’s first mail-order catalog, in 1845. I’m known for jewelry, which generates about 90 percent of my sales, but I also offer timepieces, silverware, china, crystal, stationery, fragrances and more. In 1878, a fancy 128.54-carat yellow diamond was named after me, and Picasso’s daughter Paloma has designed for me. I have about 275 stores worldwide. I took in $4.98 on my first day and now rake in close to $4 billion annually. I don’t serve food, but many associate me with a particular meal anyway. Who am I? (Answer: Tiffany)
