Stronger-than-expected quarterly results from Tiffany & Co. could be a good sign for the luxury industry in general, Bloomberg reports.

For the quarter that ended Oct. 21, the jewelry company reported earnings of 76 cents per share. Analysts had, on average, predicted only 68 cents per share, the news service notes.

Revenue, at $949.3 million, also beat the expectations of analysts, who had projected $922.6 million. Higher sales in China and Japan accounted for much of the increase.

Net sales in the Americas, meanwhile, fell 2 percent, Bloomberg reports.

Reuters noted that the overall sales increase was the first for Tiffany in two years.

According to Bloomberg, the results “signaled that the worst of the global luxury market’s downturn may be over.”

But Mark Erceg, the company’s chief financial officer, said the company would “like to see several quarters of sales acceleration before making any conclusion about turning global luxury spending.”

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
