Jewelry retailers spend an average of 3.2% of their total sales on advertising. That's more than bookstores (2.0%), general sporting good stores (2.2%), discount stores (1.7%) and grocery stores (1.3%), but less than department stores (3.9%), women's clothing stores (3.7%), menswear stores (3.5%) and shoe stores (4.0%).
