The history of the American company Creed Jewelry Co. began immediately after the end of the Second World War, in 1946. Its founder, a young businessman, William Creed, was at that time a jewelry wholesaler working for a company in New England. In the process of communicating with clients, he understood their request for more elegant jewelry with semi-precious stones. However, his employer did not support the young businessman’s idea of ​​expanding the product range. As the saying goes, there is a silver lining, and William founded his own company in one of the largest jewelry manufacturing centers in the United States, in Attleboro Massachusetts.
A talented businessman, William Creed, in search of suppliers of glass, crystal and rhinestones, visited Austria and the Czech Republic. As a result, Swarovski and other well-known companies became his suppliers. In general, his business flourished until the 1950s, but William’s health deteriorated and his son Jack had to lead the company. Fortunately, Jack was equally talented and well educated, and he expanded the family business.
