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.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
