Company I IBG JEWELRY Background. Founded over seventy-five years ago, the IBGoodman Company is a leading U. The family owned company is headed by Jonathan Goodman Cohen, the fourth generation Goodman in the business.Buster Goodman established the business in Cincinnati, Ohio. Buster was, however, no stranger to the industry. His father, Jacob Goodman had built successful jewelry manufacturing and retail companies, Goodman Jewelers, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Buster carved out a niche for IBGoodman by creating emblematic rings for fraternal organizations such as the Masonic Order. By the 1960s, the company earned the reputation as a leader in the mens jewelry market and Buster grew the company by trading on his expertise and close relationships with the founders of great U.
Retail institutions including Service Merchandise, Zale, Gordons and Kays to name just a few. As a tribute to its founder, I. Goodman incorporated Buster Goodmans distinguished silhouette into its logo. When Goodman passed away in 1976, his daughters Babette Goodman Cohen and Jane Goodman Baum inherited the business. The two decided to run the business themselves and elder sister, Babette took the helm.
At the time, this was an extraordinary move- few women managed manufacturing companies and almost none in the jewelry business, a male dominated industry for generations. With no rule book to follow, Babette set her own course.Always open to new ideas and innovations, Babette led the company and set many industry precedents. In 1980, IBGoodman was one of the first companies to establish a partnership with a DeBeers sightholder, thereby positioning the company as a vertically integrated prime jewelry manufacturing company and diamond supplier. Soon after, the company was among the first to brand a mens jewelry line, a diamond band collection named LeMans. This new product category caught the attention of DeBeers which, in turn, created its first A Diamond is Forever advertising campaign targeting the mens market. In the following years, IBGoodman traded on the strength it achieved through national advertising and sound management principles to grow its business through product line expansion which included all categories of womens diamond and gemstone fine jewelry. In 1998, IBGoodman introduced a womens designer fine jewelry collection which it continues to be marketed under the brand name Z. In 1999 the company launched one of the most innovative product lines at the time, Stl, combining alternative metals such as stainless steel, 14K gold and diamonds to create stylish, comfortable and extremely durable jewelry accessories for men.
Since then, employing alternative metal in fine jewelry design and manufacture has developed mass market popularity. In 2005 Z expanded into the bridal jewelry business and quickly made a statement for original design, high quality and exceptional service. In 2008, the Company launched another innovative line to meet the needs of a growing market for mens stylish accessories. Goodman is a portfolio of mens jewelry accessories crafted in 925 Sterling silver, and accented with 18Kt gold, precious stones and other exotic materials.
