*Shreve, Crump & Low Graduate Gemologist commentary: Like Shreve, Crump & Low, one of America’s oldest fine jewelers, Black, Starr and Frost traces its roots to 1810. In that year, Erastus Barton and Frederick Marquand opened Marquand and Barton near New York’s Maiden Lane. In 1939, the firm was one of five American jewelers invited to exhibit at New York’s World’s Fair. Black, Star, and Frost has produced exquisite jewelry in almost every era. In 1929, it merged with Gorham to become Black, Starr, Frost—Gorham.
