Oldest Jeweler in the United States


Established in 1785, Bixler's claims to be the oldest continuously operating jeweler in the U.S. - and I believe them, since my data base also shows them as the oldest.  A sixth generation Bixler family member is still actively involved in the business in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The next oldest jeweler in my data base was founded in 1836 - Bromberg's in Birmingham, Alabama.

If you know of older jewelry stores, please let me know!
