Luxury jewellery brand Carat* has reported strong and sustained sales growth during the Christmas period for the four months to the end of December 2015.
The company’s combined UK wholesale, duty free and in-store concession business saw a 29% increase on like-for-like sales compared to 2014.
Head of UK wholesale, Chris Moses, says: “Our 2015 focus was to clearly define the correct sales channels for the brand fit. Carat* is the bridge between fashion and fine jewellery, therefore the growth and performance clearly demonstrates an increased brand awareness and appetite for Carat* across all three of our product categories.”
Carat* London also opened a further stand alone store in London’s Burlington Arcade and refurbished it’s Boutique at Harrods during 2015.
For 2016 the brand plans to grow and evolve the successful silver Millennium bracelet and Heroines collection for Spring / Summer 2016. New 9ct gold, plus silver borderset and cocktail introductions are also planned for later this year.
Carat* will also continue be the official jewellery partner to the BAFTA television awards in May for the sixth year.
