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.”

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.”
