JACKSONVILLE, FL — Stein Mart announced that it has launched a fine jewelry department in 51 stores and online.

The fine jewelry collection, called “Stein Mart Jewel Box,” features diamonds, pearls, 14K gold, gemstones and designer branded jewelry with prices ranging from $200 to $5,000, according to the announcement. The company plans to roll out the full assortment to more doors in 2020.

Stein Mart has 283 stores in 30 states.

In time for the holiday season, Stein Mart has also introduced a key item fine jewelry program in all stores. The assortment is composed of diamond and sterling silver pieces priced under $200.

“The addition of fine jewelry allows us to expand our luxury offerings and is another way we differentiate from other off-price retailers,” said MaryAnne Morin, president of the retail chain. “To ensure we are providing our customers with the best product at compelling everyday low prices, we chose a vendor partner that leads the industry in sourcing capabilities and delivers amazing value.”

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.”
