The world’s oldest jewellery made from eagle claws was worn by human relatives 130,000 years ago.
Philadelphia is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Located in the Northeastern United States at the confluence of the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers, Philadelphia is the economic and cultural center of the Delaware Valley.
Jewellers’ Row, located in the Center City section of Philadelphia, is composed of more than 300 retailers, wholesalers, and craftsmen located on Sansom Street between Seventh and Eighth Streets, and on Eighth Street between Chestnut and Walnut Streets. It is the oldest diamond district in America, and second in size only to the one in New York City. Many of the area’s retail, jewellery making and appraisal businesses have been owned by the same families for more than five generations.
