Founded in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1831 by Jabez Gorham, Gorham Manufacturing Company was the largest manufacturer of silverware in the United States in the 19th century. Chief designer William Godman released a line of jewelry made by hand. This jewellery combined free art-nouveau lines with the ornate decor in the spirit of the Arts and Crafts movement.
Traditionally, for creating their hand-hummered and handmade jewelry decorations masters used silver, partially covered with gold, and gold. Also, they used enamel with the inserts of natural and artificial gems – turquoise, amethyst, etc.
