Jewellery retailer Links has revealed a record trading result for 2009.

Sales rose 28%, to £76.8m with the retailer saying that a strong Christmas had contributed to the result.

Andrew Marshall, chief executive officer, said: “With 42 outlets across the UK and a further 44 internationally, Links is now a major player in the luxury segment. We have a number of exciting initiatives in place for 2010 which will see us build further on our strong market position.”

Links of London was acquired by the Greek Folli Follie group in July 2006.
