Boston’s oldest fine jeweler, Shreve, Crump & Low, has opened its third location—and first outside of Massachusetts—in Greenwich, Conn.
The company, which was founded in 1796, opened the doors to its 4,800-square-foot space at 125 Greenwich Ave., on the corner of Greenwich Avenue and Lewis Street, just in time for the holiday shopping rush. The corner building was originally built as a bank in the 1920s, and it retains many of its stately original details, including stone columns and beautiful scrolling on its facade.

The company could not be reached for comment, but Adam Bossi, president of Shreve, Crump & Low, told News-Times that Greenwich was an attractive destination for the brand because “it’s an amazing, affluent community filled with what we think to be some of the finest buyers and purveyors of fine jewels in the world. And we thought, what better place to bring a name like Shreve, Crump & Low, which has [been] a mainstay in the New England market since 1796.” The street is already home to some venerable names in jewelry, notably Betteridge and Tiffany & Co.
Bossi said the company plans to expand further “as the years go on.”
The brand also has a three-level flagship on Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay and a unit in Boston suburb Chestnut Hill that specializes in antique and estate jewelry.
