Jeweler also taking steps to connect with younger consumers.

Tiffany & Co. is looking beyond its core jewelry business to buoy overall sales, partnering with Reed Krakoff to design a new gift, home and accessories collection, Luxury Daily writes. The article says that Tiffany’s “worldwide net sales for 2016 were lower than the year-ago first quarter,” marking a decline in all regions except Japan.

“A heritage brand, such as Tiffany, must continue to evolve to remain relevant to its core and prospective customers,” Rebecca Miller, CEO of Miller & Company, told the fashion news outlet. “It is a natural progression for a brand to expand beyond its core products to those products that serve as a natural extension of the brand.”

The article also mentions Tiffany’s recent partnership with Grace Coddington, the former creative director of American Vogue magazine, to lead a new ad campaign featuring several “iconic” jewelry collections. “This relationship signals the brand’s intent and understanding that the world of jewelry, which is underperforming at all levels, needs to begin to reach out and find disruptive ways to create an edge in the market. Capitalizing on the fashion world’s constant motion by using designers in fashion that are modern may help to hit the right note with millennials,” Miller added.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
