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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
