The increase for the segment, which includes jewelry chains Borsheims, Helzberg Diamonds and Ben Bridge Jeweler, was boosted primarily by the company’s car business. Pretax earnings for the entire retail unit grew 1.6% to $874 million for the year.

Revenue from manufacturing of consumer products, which includes jewelry maker Richline Group, slipped 6% to $11.81 billion.
