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 the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
