The demand for gold jewelry in the US rose a little over 3% in 2017.
The United States, India and China were the main drivers of the increase, together accounting for 78 of the 82-ton increase in the worldwide demand.
According to the World Gold Council, online sales accounted for an increasingly larger share of jewelry demand.
This trend played to the strengths of the larger, higher-end retailers, it said, while lower-end mass-market retailers suffered.
