Gold and Silver Smiths
Salem, Mass.
Established 1867
Older catalogues shed light on the jewelry and accessories of times past. Illustrations date the items we collect and enjoy today, and help us understand how these lovely things were worn and used. 
It is also interesting to see how these accessories were priced over 100 years ago.  Where possible, we have added pictures of the items illustrated in the catalogue.
Originally a local jewelry shop, by the late 1800's, Daniel Low & Co. was distributing their gifts catalogue and selling nationally via mail order.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
