Wells, Inc. Attleboro, Mass. Founded in 1922 by Raymond L. Wells who first started manufacturing in the old Robinson Bldg. on Railroad Avenue. At one time they advertised that they were the world's largest manufacturer of movable charms. They also manufactured other jewelry.
Wells purchased R. Blackinton & Co. in 1967. In mid-1977 they were combined with Benrus to form Wells Benrus Corp. And, in 1978 Wells Benrus made the decision to leave the jewelry industry but to continue to market its Destino line of leather goods.
