Whitehouse Brothers was founded in 1898 by Joseph C. and William H. Whitehouse. The brothers quickly developed a reputation for manufacturing finely designed and handcrafted platinum jewelry.
By the early 1920s, Whitehouse Brothers had grown to become the largest jewelry manufacturer in America, employing more than 100 craftsmen. Among those employed were designers of precious metal jewelry, who were being classically trained in Cincinnati as metal sculptors.
Whitehouse Brothers offered to undertake the training of wounded soldiers returning from World War I. The veterans were trained in the manufacture of jewelry for six months so they could find new work in the industrial world.
Everything at Whitehouse Brothers is built by our workers in the United States — nothing is ever outsourced. We also use 100% recycled metal and responsibly sourced diamonds.
