National Jeweler released its ‘State of the Majors’ report.

NEW YORK – Signet Jewelers Ltd. has topped National Jeweler’s 2017 list of “$100 Million Supersellers.”

The ranking is part of the publication’s new State of the Majors report, which analyzes the performance of the country’s largest jewelers and the current state of jewelry retailing. Rounding out the top five are Wal-Mart, Macy’s, Costco and Tiffany & Co.

National Jeweler notes that even as the number of retail locations falls, the number of firms selling more than $100 million in jewelry and watches climbed last year.

The upshot is that retailers are “scooping up the jewelry customers of now-shuttered stores,” according to the publication.

The State of the Majors consists of two lists analyzing 2016 sales data, according to a press release. The $100 Million Supersellers list ranks the largest U.S. jewelers by annual sales, including both specialty jewelers and multi-line retailers. The Top 50 North American Retail Jewelry Chains list ranks specialty jewelers by number of stores.

National Jeweler Editor-in-Chief Michelle Graff said the report is “an excellent resource for anyone who needs data on the fine jewelry industry.”

The report also includes articles on the states of the diamond industry, colored stone market and jewelry design, the release notes.

“The National Jeweler team is very proud of this year’s State of the Majors,” said National Jeweler Publisher Matthew Tratner. “Our editorial and sales teams put in a lot of effort to make it a robust issue packed with useful insight. Now back in annual circulation, we are thrilled by the response from the industry and know that its release has been widely anticipated.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
