Pandora also leads brand visibility as it sees the biggest growth in online visibility, with a 22% increase.
Brands including Warren James, The Beaverbrooks Club, and Watchshop have also made it into the top 5, with these increases in visibility highlighting a successful strategy and that the demand for jewellery and watches remains prevalent.
In contrast, H.Samuel sees the biggest drop in organic visibility, with a 4% decrease Year on Year.
High-street classic Claire’s follows a similar fate, as it records an 11% drop.
Brett Janes, managing director at Salience Search Marketing, said: “This increase in demand within the industry indicates a successful strategy, with this period crucial for brands to continue amplifyng their online presence to gain prominence in the year ahead.
“It’s a shame to see high street retailers including H.Samuel and Claire’s facing a decline, however, brands who have seen a drop in searches will need to look at Pandora for inspiration, as the jeweller trumps both as the most prominent brand and in visibility.
“Overall, building a strong following and online presence across multiple channels becomes vital in driving sales and capitalising on the expanding market demand.”
