Baltimore-based Smyth Jewelers has been hired to manage the Bailey Banks & Biddle Group jewelry chain, which has nine locations in seven states, the retailers announced Monday.

Smyth, which runs three Smyth stores and two Pandora stores in Maryland, will handle the operations, purchasing, administration and field support for the Bailey stores. Texas-based Bailey runs stores in Arkansas, California, Florida, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.

Smyth CEO Mark Motes and the firm's chief operating officer, John Jackson, will oversee the Carrollton, Texas, chain's operations. Smyth had served as a consultant to the Texas jeweler, which was established in 1832.

In Maryland, Smyth operates stores in Timonium, Annapolis and Ellicott City and Pandora stores in Towson and Annapolis. Smyth also runs eight Pandora stores outside Maryland, in Virginia, Texas, New Jersey and Missouri. The retailer was founded in 1914 by Albert Smyth.
