RAPAPORT... Sales and profit at Kingold Jewelry decreased in the second quarter as the China-based gold supplier noted a decline in demand for its branded jewelry.

Total revenue dropped 12% year on year to $598 million in the three months ending June 30, the manufacturer and designer of jewelry, ornaments and investment products said last week. Profit fell 7% to $12.6 million.

The decrease in sales was primarily driven by a decline in purchases for the company’s branded products, as well as a foreign-currency loss due to the depreciation of the yuan, Kingold noted. Those factors outweighed increased sales of the company’s customized products and a rise in the average selling price.
