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.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
