(PRESS RELEASE) HONG KONG – Platinum Guild International has published the Q2 Platinum Jewellery Business Review of the platinum jewelry market around the world. Upon close evaluation of the performance of the platinum jewelry market during the second quarter, key findings reveal that the more mature U.S. market continues to see positive growth to support an expansion of platinum offerings, and India’s sales for platinum jewelry are steadily increasing despite being a young market.

“As the second biggest use of platinum, the jewelry market is critical to the future success of the platinum industry. The Platinum Jewellery Business Review reports provide an analaysis and full look at the key markets to determine the effectiveness of marketing campaigns and the future growth opportunity,” says PGI CEO Huw Daniel.

In the U.S., more retailers have been increasing or are planning to increase their platinum jewelry offering on the back of lower metal prices and recent marketing initiatives. Combined with a robust economic market and recent tax cuts, PGI’s trade partners are reporting 9 percent growth in platinum ounce consumption in Q2.

India’s platinum jewelry sales continues to outpace gold and diamonds sales and register the highest growth (26 percent) of the platinum jewelry demand in the key markets. This is largely attributed to collaborative trade initiatives, and distinctive branding and marketing with a growing appeal to a higher income urban youth.

A critical market for platinum jewelry, China’s sentiment was improved for platinum jewelry retail and manufacturing in the second quarter led in large part by new product launches and overhauled consumer initiatives.

As the second largest platinum jewelry market, the outlook for Japan’s platinum sales remains stable with continued growth in the non-bridal jewelry segment.

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.”
