This comes at a time when the U.S. domestic retail market has been suffering. High unemployment rates and fewer wage increases have decreased sales of products under $500. In fact, a large portion of domestic sales in that range were made by foreign tourists. While high-end sales have remained stable, it's predicted that many consumers will put off entrance into the luxury market until conditions improve. Visit to see how companies in this industry have grown over the past years and how they are expected to perform in the future.

Another issue within the sector is the recent rise in metal prices. With gold reaching an all-time high at $1,276.50 on September 14th, the jewelry sector has seen its margins drop as cost outpaced consumer demand. Whilst companies like Zale Corporation has been hurt by the high prices of gold, others in the space like Tiffany & Co. have attempted to counteract their exposure to the commodities market by expanding their product line to offer non-metal based products such as wallets and purses. Tiffany & Co. and Zale Corporation research reports are accessible for free by registering today at
