Richline Group, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company, has reached a strategic partnership agreement for the exclusive distribution of products leveraging Say™ technology from Hermes Innovation Ltd.
Hermes Innovation Ltd. was founded in 2013 by an elite squad of high-tech veterans who hail from corporate giants like Conduit, Kodak, and Intel. Their Say™ device is the first social experience that was specifically designed for Wearables, incorporating a wearable device coupled with a customized social network.
Richline will work to incorporate this innovative device—which empowers people to customize the external appearance with exclusive graphical content of their choice to suit any fad, mood, whim, or fancy—into an array of fine and fashion jewelry as part of their new smart jewelry initiative.
“One of the great untapped opportunities for smart jewelry is personalization,” said Richline CEO, Dennis Ulrich. “And Say™ is uniquely positioned to empower women, men, and even entire communities to express themselves in entirely new ways through this one-of-a-kind socially connected wearable.”
Richline previewed several proof-of-concept designs at the JCK Jewelry Show during Market Week. Following the introduction of this first iteration of Say™ later this year, Richline looks to bring designs to market in time for the holiday selling season.
When asked about the partnership, Hermes Innovation CEO, Uri Keren said, “We could not have found a better partner than Richline for this project. Their understanding of the future of jewelry, coupled with our technology is exactly what is needed to help introduce Say™ to fashion and tech savvy luxury consumers.”
