Founded in 1902, W.E. Richards Company produced a wide range of high quality products in the Victorian, Art Deco and Modernist styles. In particular, elegant brooches, chains, bracelets, pendants, rings and expensive charms. The company used noble 925 sterling silver, gilding with 10-14-carat gold as materials. Also, cultured pearls, crystals, and semiprecious stones – agate, cat’s eye, jasper, onyx, carnelian and others. All products – labeled “Sterling”, “W.E. Richards”, “WRE” (since 1944), or “Symmetalic”, which also belongs to this company.
Noteworthy, the company that has existed since 1902 is still active, but already as part of a whole conglomerate. In 1907, Richards sold his share to Raymond Horton and C.A. Howard. According to sources, in May 2003, AB group announced the purchase of W.E. Richards Company. Renaming it to W.E. Richards Company AB group, its address has changed to 40 John Williams St. Attleboro, Massachessetts.
