Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Rhode Island-based Ross-Simons “has consistently grown its customer base over the past five years fueled primarily by new customer acquisition,” according to a press release from Nonantum.

“The company credits its steady growth to its proprietary products, diverse marketing mix, and continued focus on the changing shopping patterns of its core customer base of self-purchasing women.”

“While the U.S. continues to see strong overall growth in the jewelry industry, consumer spending has been steadily shifting from brick-and-mortar jewelry retailers to online retail,” said Jim Speltz, CEO of Ross-Simons. “Ross-Simons derives its strength in direct-to-consumer from its long tenure in the catalog business. We pride ourselves on adapting to engage the consumer wherever she wants to shop.”

Jon Biotti, managing partner of Nonantum, said, “We are pleased to partner with the leadership team at Ross-Simons including Darrell and Jim who will continue to serve as valuable owner-partners as we grow the brand. We are excited to support the company’s evolution as it realizes its full potential as a preeminent industry leader in quality and customer service, and as a best-in-class employer.”

Nonantum is a middle-market private equity firm focused on investing in family and founder-led businesses, corporate carve-outs and complex situations.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
