About Us

For over 125 years W.M.S Rich and Son has served as New Jersey’s most trusted pawnshop and purveyor of fine jewelry.

Family Owned

The Garden State's Largest Pawnbroker/Jeweler

William S. Rich and Son was established in Newark, NJ in 1890. As smaller competitors in Newark closed their doors, William S. Rich and Son acquired their pawn loans to become one of Newark’s oldest and most successful businesses.



In 1993 Rich decided to expand outside of the City of Newark and opened our second Location in Belleville. Recognizing a greater need for pawnshops in the state, Rich and Son has since expanded to now 10 locations in New Jersey. Even as we have grown, WM.S. Rich and Son still remains a family business providing collateral loans, wholesale and custom Jewelry, check cashing and more with the same personalized customer service we strived for from day one.
