Whiting and Davis vintage costume jewelry
Founded in Massachusetts in 1876, the Whiting and Davis Company became known for its fine evening bags, wiped out of gold and silver threads. In 1907, the company began to produce a line of costume jewelry made of silver and gold and silver-plated metals. Costume jewelery includes necklaces, bracelets and earrings, many of which demonstrate the influence of the style of Art Deco and Art Nouveau. Inspired by Egyptian jewelry designs, as well as the Victorian era motifs, Whiting and Davis produced stunning large bracelets, necklaces and brooches with floral engraving and reliefs. Notable are golden and silver mesh necklaces in the shape of ties, and of course, considered highly valuable among collectors – spiral bracelets in the form snakes.

In fact, the history Whiting and Davis vintage costume jewelry began in the distant 1876, when three men met in Boston. Willian H.Wade, Edward P. Davis and Louis Heckman organized a small workshop for making silver jewelry. And in 1886 they named their company Wade, Davis & Co.
Noteworthy, their first debut collection (featured in fashion magazines) appeared in August 1886. It consisted of silver jewelry, popular in the late Victorian era – bracelets, earrings, brooches – pins and brooches. Also, in the 1950s they began producing jewelry with cameos, pendants and earrings and charm bracelets.
