MILAN — The Italian jewelry industry may have registered a 3.6 percent increase in revenues in 2011 compared with 2010, but the scenario is far from encouraging, as evidenced during a recent conference organized by Club degli Orafi Italia, an independent association of major players operating in the sector.
“After brilliant performances in the first part of the year, revenues started showing a slowdown in the summer months, before turning negative in the last quarter,” commented Stefania Trenti, industry director of bank Intesa Sanpaolo’s studies and research department.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
