The Month In Review: July July 26, 2017 (0 comments)


Merrick, NY—Traditionally a slow period in the industry, July saw big changes at two of the nation’s most prominent jewelry retailers, Signet and Tiffany & Co. Both companies, beset by ongoing woes at the sales counter, named new CEOs. At Signet, a dynasty came to an end with the departure of Mark Light, son of longtime former CEO Nate Light, and the appointment of its first female CEO; Tiffany is pinning its hopes on a former Bulgari executive who also has street cred from Diesel. A prominent jeweler is featured on DIY Network for passion of rehabbing and building vacation homes (with a jewelry theme!); there’s more turmoil in the diamond world with as conflict diamonds may be back in the pipeline; and now that good quality can be had at many price points, luxury retailers try to focus on selling intangibles to win customers. In case you missed any, here were the top stories of July:
