The Brown Goldsmiths Experience

Welcome! It’s a pleasure to meet you.

Our business was founded over 50 years ago by the creative and wonderful minds of Steve and Judy Brown. It still stands in its original location, just a block from L.L. Bean. On the first floor, you will find a showroom full of jewelry we have designed and created ourselves, as well as collections from jewelers we deeply trust and admire.

Upstairs is our workshop of jewelers and goldsmiths. While you are browsing and shopping, you might be lucky enough to hear their tools at work. They are likely creating a custom design dreamed up by a customer, or fine tuning a new addition to our Brown Goldsmiths Signature Collection.  We hope you pay us a visit and try on jewelry, ask questions, and request to tour our workshop. We want you to know all aspects of our business to ensure the best experience for you.

We invite you to start your journey here.

It only makes sense for you to do your research before diving into a fine jewelry purchase. Many of our services and benefits are listed below. Please do not hesitate to call us or stop in if you would like to know more about any of these offerings.

Appraisals

Appraisals put a replacement cost on your jewelry for insurance purposes. It is peace of mind for those “what if” scenarios, and we are happy to guide you through the process on site.

Appointments

We offer appointments in store and virtually. We recommend an appointment especially if you have a particular idea or gift in mind. This allows us to give you the attention you deserve, as well as prepare some ideas just for you.

blog

Blog

We’d like to think our Blog offers a glimpse into the sometimes intimidating world of jewelry. From the tough stuff like understanding platinum, to the helpful stuff like jewelry care, to the insider scoop like trading “up” your diamonds, we hope you find a tidbit that is helpful to you.
