Preliminary 2012 sales numbers reveal healthy growth for the jewelry industry with an emphasis on diamond sales.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
According to National Jeweler, “Retailers who spoke to National Jeweler for the final sales report of the year (2012) weren’t disappointed.*” The vast majority said their 2012 holiday sales were up when compared with last year.
Growth in large part is due to the increase in diamond jewelry sales, including diamond rings, pendants, hoops and studs. The rise in jewelry sales, diamond and otherwise, is thought to correspond to the conclusion of a long presidential election as well as an emotional reaction to the years’ more tragic events including Newtown and Hurricane Sandy havoc. Many jewelers concluded that couples that had been together for a number of years decided to get married and bought big diamond engagement rings to celebrate their future nuptials.
Although final jewelry sales figures for 2012 have not yet been calculated on a national level, it is expected that overall sales will have risen for both online and brick & mortar jewelry stores.
Allurez, a recognized New York based online jewelry store, announced today that they exceeded sales expectations for 2012 with record growth and higher sales on their entire line of diamonds, engagement rings, gemstone pendants, earrings, bracelets and more.
An Allurez spokesman continued, “2012 proved to be a strong year for us with record sales on engagement and wedding rings, thanks to our new intuitive programs for customers to create their own engagements rings, earrings and necklaces.

Many within the jewelry industry believe that 2013 jewelry sales look bright, especially for emerald gemstones. According to Pantone Color Institute®, “Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013.**” The report continues, “The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum.
