We love how beautiful bride Malia paired Maejean Vintage pieces with her special family heirloom jewelry!

Our antique 1909 locket, which has the bride & grooms initials on it, (and was Malia's first antique jewelry purchase) matches perfectly with her grandmother's aunt's pocket watch chain that was worn during her time as a nurse in the war.

Vintage Jewelry Ads: Jeweler's Circular, June 7, 1911

There is so much to learn from old jewelry advertisements. We are lucky to have acquired several volumes of The Jewelers' Circular, from 1911 to the 1920s. In this blog post, we are going to share some of our favorite advertisements from the June 1911 issue. 

Of course the jewelry in the ads make us swoon, but even the font and filigree borders are drool-worthy. Hope you enjoy perusing these old-school ads, along with some pieces we have or have had in our shop by the companies mentioned.

The D.F. Briggs Company

The D.F.B Co was founded by D.F. Briggs in 1892. The company was named Briggs, Bates & Bacon from 1922-1950.

We adore this beautiful ad, which features men's items (pocket watch chains) in addition to women's bracelets. We currently have a beautiful expansion bracelet by the D.F. Briggs Company, seen below.

Bates & Bacon

Company was founded in 1856 and was in business until the mid 1940s. The firm was based in Attleboro, MA. .

Lots of beautiful men's accessories in this ad from Bates & Bacon! We currently don't have any pieces by this company, but we have sold quite a few pocket watch chains and bracelets by them in the past. Pictured below is a pocket watch chain we sold last year.

Bliss Brothers Company

This jewelry manufacturing company was located in Attleboro, MA and in business from 1896 to the 1950s. Their trademark was a large B with a smaller B in the top half, and CO in the bottom half. 

Oh my, I especially love that swallow locket! We have sold quite a few beautiful lockets by this company, but currently don't have anything in stock by Bliss Brothers. Pictured below is a really beautiful Edwardian era locket we sold by Bliss Brothers.

Rhode Island Ring Company

This is a jewelry manufacturing company we aren't familiar with, but I had to share this vintage ring ad! That snake ring is superb!

Do you have any pieces of jewelry from the above mentioned jewelry companies? If so, share with us in the comments section below!
