NEW YORK — The all-important fourth quarter could add some luster to the fine jewelry business, which has had its challenges in recent seasons with the economic downturn.
Vendors and retailers at the JA New York International Jewelry show agreed that a slight pickup in jewelry sales over the past two months helped lift spirits at the event, which ended its four-day run at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Wednesday. The show featured about 1,900 exhibitors. Attendance was up by 12 percent over last summer’s edition to 14,000 visitors.
