From AJU Lang Antiques
"One of Newark's earliest jewellers was James Madison Durand, whose great-grandfather worked in gold and silver in 'Jefferson Village,' or Maplewood, as early as 1756. The young Durand is particularly interesting because of the route he took to become a businessman, starting as an apprentice, then working at the jewellery bench in an already established firm. Finally, he established his own business. A fledgling businessman in the 1830s, Durand, by the time of his death in 1895, had become one of America's leading jewellery manufacturers. His success was attributed by one of his contemporaries as 'plodding work, careful attention to details, vigilant and constant attention to the business, and a superior skill in design and workmanship.' Durand and Co. was located at 49 Franklin St., with salesrooms in New York City at 9 Maiden Lane. Eventually, Durand and Co. employed 125 men".
