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.”

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.
