What’s Selling in Stores: Necklaces

We asked retailers across the country to share their best-selling necklaces this week.

Frasca Jewelers, Palm Desert, Calif. Cherie Chantecler white gold necklace with 163 grams of freshwater pearls, 2.86 cts. t.w. diamonds and tridacna, $19,000. “It’s amazing! It’s a bigger-than-life kind of piece,” says store owner Maria Frasca. “It’s fun and chic.”

 

 

La Mine d’Or, Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. Custom multicolored sapphire necklace mounted on 18k white gold, $1,800. “It’s different—people come here looking for something that is somewhat unique that they don’t see in every chain store,” says owner and president Andre Cormier.

 

 

Lucky Jewelers, St Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Private label diamonds by the yard, $1,500–$3,500. “They’re different and very causal,” says store president Pash Daswani. “Most people don’t want something too fancy-shmancy.”

 

Ford, Gittings & Kane, Rome, Ga. Simon G. platinum, emerald and diamond necklace, price on request. “It’s probably the most beautiful necklace we’ve sold this year!” raves store co-owner Jan Fergerson.

 

 

Stucki Jewelers, Grass Valley, Calif. Custom 14k yellow gold necklace with 0.16 ct. t.w. diamonds and 6.7 cts. t.w. opals, $2,650. “Opals have been selling really well,” says store co-owner James Arbaugh.
