Signet Jewelers Ltd. plans to put have more than 80 James Allen displays within its Jared stores before the holiday season.

The company (NYSE: SIG) tested the concept and found that it resulted in “positive sales results and strong traffic gains,” Signet CEO Gina Drosos said in a second-quarter earnings call. The story was first reported by Rapaport News.

“This is a terrific way to create a curated physical presence for James Allen, while maximizing our existing off mall space and staffing in Jared,” Drosos said.

The expansion means the James Allen store-in-store format will be present in one-third of Jared locations.

Signet bought R2Net, owner of online diamond retailer James Allen,  in 2017 for $328 million.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
