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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
