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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
