Total jewelry and watches sales in Britain rose at their fastest rate in five months during the five-week period from November 29 to January 2, according to the latest British Retail Consortium Retail Sales Monitor report. Jewelry and watches were placed 4th in the total sales sector performance rankings table, with the result being even more impressive given the tough comparisons set by strong December sales growth in 2014. Overall U.K. retail sales rose by just 0.1% across all categories (food and non-food) on a like-for-like basis from December 2014 the report added.
