I first walked into Shreve, Crump & Low, while on Newbury Street, to obtain information about how to clean diamond rings at home. This information will be shared in a future post, but I also walked in knowing I had another mission to fulfill.
That mission??? To keep finding New England businesses, or those who got their start in New England, that are unique, have a great story to tell, and exude "fine living" qualities no matter what the price point is.
My visit to Shreve, Crump & Low absolutely fit my check list and then some. Their story in a nut shell? With a start in Boston in 1796, they are the oldest jeweler in America and what a story it is. At then end of this post, you I have included a link to their website and also their historic timeline.
In the meantime, here are just a few stunning items I got to view. I was like a magpie drawn to every glittery item hopping from case to case. As soon as I saw one piece of jewelry, that lured me in, my eyes were being distracted by another piece and I could not wait to move on and hear more about it. Let me just say, my jewelry wish list has just gotten a little longer :-).
I am always drawn to the estate jewelry section when visiting jewelers. There is something to be said about knowing someone else enjoyed and loved a piece of jewelry. For the fun of it, I create my own stories of their history if there is not one to be told. The watch above is a vintage Shreve, Crump & Low piece that made its way back to store to be enjoyed yet again.
