The rich history of Rhode Island’s jewelry industry, which flourished in the 1800s and employed a staggering 40,000 individuals by 1978. This thriving industry specialized in a wide range of products, including fashion jewelry, awards, belt buckles, novelties, silverware, and exquisite silver and gold fine jewelry. The region even boasted a dedicated school for jewelry making techniques, ensuring the highest level of craftsmanship.
