Legère is a division of The AB Group, a family-owned company that has been manufacturing jewelry for over 40 years. We are members of Jewelers Board of Trade (JBT) and Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of American (MJSA).
The AB Group, formerly Arenburg Brothers, Inc., was founded by brothers Charles and Robert Arenburg in 1967. They started in the most humble surroundings: the chicken coop behind Charles’s house. Charles was a polisher, and Bob was a hand engraver, and together they could take a piece of raw material and make it beautiful. Originally, they offered their skills for hire within the trade, operating a “job shop” of jewelry decorating that served local manufacturers. Through the years, they expanded their business, hired dozens of employees, and acquired several other companies, thereby adding other manufacturing processes (stamping, soldering, electroplating, stone-setting, etc.) to become a complete manufacturing facility. During that time, they manufactured jewelry for many exclusive customers whose name you would recognize, but eventually decided to launch their own brand, Legère, focusing on men’s jewelry.
Now a well-established brand within the retail jewelry industry, Legère offers a full line of men’s accessories, while its sister division, W.E.Richards, offers a full line of ladies’ jewelry.
We support green manufacturing initiatives, and routinely reuse, recycle, refine, minimize waste, and operate our factory in ways that reduce our carbon footprint.
The second generation of our family is active in the business, ensuring our presence in jewelry and men’s accessories for years to come.
