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.”

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
