Small and medium scale enterprises are making a killing in the world economy today, not because they have the ability to compete with the already established global conglomerate and the leading companies in the world today, but because these companies, irrespective of their size or market capital, have been able to establish accessibility and trust with their customers. Most of all, the customers have been able to put faces behind every company they interact with. At the center of this budding relationship between small-scale businesses and their customers is an establishment of mutual respect and trust, in addition to the humanity driving every party involved. Ari Kafadar has succeeded in building a relationship with his customers. No customer is getting the same treatment as another because each customer’s experience dealing with Ari is unique. He has a mechanism for coming up with jewelry designs specific to every individual’s needs.
Ari Kafadar is an entrepreneur, jeweler who is spearheading several technological innovations in the jewelry industry. He is the CEO of AK Jewelry LLC in Edgewater, NJ, and he is known as the jeweler running a sophisticated jewelry shop that relies heavily on technology and computer software to bring some designs to life. Ari’s interest in the jewelry business dates back to his childhood, having known his father to be a jeweler and a pretty good one too. After high school, Ari worked in a retail store selling high-end electronic appliances. Still, the absence of fulfillment on the job led him back to the family business, where he started working for his father.
Joining the family business was never meant to be a walk in the park, as Ari confirms the numerous challenges that he faced and the several times the business was under threat; however, his never-give-up attitude coupled with his desire to see the family business scaled to service a clientele at least five times larger kept him moving. “We did this with the first few athletes we dealt with, and through word of mouth, we have grown bigger. I strive to get bigger and better and work to be a household name in the jewelry industry.
Unlike most jewelers who outsource certain aspects of their production process, Ari Kafadar’s designs are completed from start to finish under one roof. They rely heavily on the use of computer designs, especially on the pendant. As a result, it is a one-stop-shop for anyone looking to enhance their looks with some well cut-out and properly designed pieces of jewelry. According to Ari, regardless of what one is looking for, “Our prices and quality will always be the best around for this reason. We are a Jewellery shop that specializes in pieces for celebrities and public figures.”
Since taking over the family business, Ari has embarked on a series of expansion programs, which has increased the company’s clientele base; he is committed to expanding even further into a bigger area or opening multiple retail locations across the United States, particularly the West Coast.
