Richline Acquires The Aaron Group

The company was founded as Samuel Aaron Jewelry in 1950

On Jan. 11, Richline Group acquired The Aaron Group, the jewelry manufacturer formerly—and still largely—known as Samuel Aaron.

Founded as Samuel Aaron Jewelry in 1950, The Aaron Group is now an international vertically integrated jewelry manufacturer headed by Robert (Bobby) Kempler. Based in New York City, it has operations in London; Mumbai, India; Hong Kong; and Guangzhou, China.

“Richline Group support will enable The Aaron Group to grow faster, introduce new designs and collections more rapidly, and expand on our history of success by reaching a broader array of customers and markets,” said Kempler in a statement. “Our mutual goal is to anticipate, foster, and drive positive change in our industry.”

Richline CEO Dennis Ulrich said in the same statement, “This acquisition will allow The Aaron Group to continue as the leader of bridal, three-stone, and fashion diamond and gemstone fine jewelry.”

Over the last year, Berkshire Hathaway–owned Richline has acquired John C. Nordt, wearables company Viawear, e-commerce site Gemvara, and Silpada.
