NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In celebration of fifty years of Berkshire Hathaway, Richline Group has created a unique collection of commemorative jewelry especially for the May, 2015 shareholders meeting. The exclusive products, which will only be available at the event, include a commemorative coin from the LeachGarner Division; a set of Berkshire Hathaway themed bangle bracelets from the newest acquisition, Chrysalis; and a smartwatch from distribution partner, Omate, which includes a Warren Buffett watch face. Richline also partnered with the Cross Pen Company to create an engraved, 14K gold-filled commemorative pen especially for the event.
“Over the past few years, creating commemorative coins featuring Warren and Charlie has become an annual tradition for us,” says Richline CMO, Mark Hanna. “In honor of 50 years of Berkshire Hathaway, we’ve decided instead to create a single design—available in a choice of Fine Silver or 24K Karat Gold—honoring this extraordinary milestone.”
Richline Group’s President, Dave Meleski shares that, “Our Chrysalis brand is all about the physical expression of our personalities and our memories. Their commemorative set of stackable bangle bracelets, featuring both Warren and Charlie, is the perfect way to celebrate what Berkshire Hathaway means to all of us who attend the annual shareholders meeting.”
With regard to the special edition Lutetia watch from Omate, Richline CEO, Dennis Ulrich adds, “smart jewelry, including watches, is a growing priority here at Richline. We see this emerging category as one of the keys to our future. With this in mind, we partnered with our friends at Omate to create a cutting edge watch with a unique twist. Not only is it a sign of the bright future we see for both Richline Group and Berkshire Hathaway, but with its exclusive Warren Buffett watch face it’s quite a bit of fun.”
All three collectible, commemorative products, as well as the custom Cross pen, will only be available at the 2015 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting on May 1st and 2nd in Omaha Nebraska.
