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.

Want More “Me” Time? Wilkerson Will Get You There!

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
