The Jewelry Stores industry lost some of its luster during the recession. Industry revenue declined as consumer confidence plummeted and disposable income diminished. Consequently, consumers tightened their purse strings, decreasing demand for nonessential luxury items such as jewelry. Nevertheless, in the five years to 2015, revenue is expected to trend largely in line with the overall US economy. As consumers increase discretionary spending, jewelry stores will raise their prices and retain more profit, while limited competition from alternative retailers will contribute to solid revenue growth for the industry.
