TUSTIN, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2014) - The Jewelry Exchange completed a strong first quarter with a March that saw same-store sales rise by 11.01% over the previous year. This increase capped off an impressive quarter in which same-store sales increased 9.89% for the first 3 months of the year. In a jewelry industry that saw same-store sales increase 4.7% on the year and only 2.2% for the month of March, this is exemplary growth. The Jewelry Exchange attributes this significant sales increase to a marked increase in the sales of higher-priced luxury merchandise, as well as putting into place programs that have emphasized a renewed focus on customer service.

The Jewelry Exchange enjoyed a particularly significant quarter from the new Dallas location, located in Irving, TX. The latest Jewelry Exchange store to open just celebrated its first anniversary in March of this year and saw a 16.27% increase over the first quarter of 2013, most of which was spent in the old Dallas location.

With locations nationwide, as well as a high-quality online jewelry shopping experience at JewelryExchange.com, Jewelry Exchange is able to satisfy customers all across the country with diamonds imported direct and manufactured in their own jewelry factory.
