Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, former vice president of product development at Tiffany & Co., Monday was sentenced to one year and one day in prison for stealing and reselling more than $2.1 million in jewelry from the retailer.


Lederhaas-Okun was terminated by Tiffany in February and arrested by federal agents at her Darien, Conn., home in July for “checking out” jewelry from her employer and selling much of it to a Manhattan-based jewelry reseller for about $1.3 million. She pled guilty on July 26 to a single count of interstate transportation of stolen property in a plea bargain arrangement. As part of the deal, she agreed to forfeit $2.1 million and restore an additional $2.2 million.
