    OUR STORY

    TRUSTED SINCE 1870

    150 Years In The Making


    Springer’s Jewelers is a coastal New England family-owned chain of jewelry stores that provides high quality fine jewelry to thousands of New England patrons and visitors. Since 1870, Springer’s Jewelers has celebrated their clientele’s most important life moments. We are Maine’s oldest operating jewelry store and are one of the oldest fine jewelers in the United States. Springer’s Jewelers was established in 1870 by George T. Springer in nearby Saccarappa (now Westbrook, Maine) offering a wide range of optical goods, stationery, and artists materials, "fancy goods," and of course, fine jewelry. Springer’s has remained a family-owned business for four generations. Richard Beaulieu took over the business from his father in 1988 and has been owned by the Beaulieu family for four generations. Springer’s Jewelers has since welcomed Lilly Beaulieu Mullen and Zoe Beaulieu, the fourth generation, to the company, and for the first time in Springer's 150 year history, Springer's is run entirely by women.

    PORTLAND HISTORY

    By the turn of the century, the company had moved from nearby Saccarappa to 515 Congress, where Edmond Beaulieu Sr. acquired the store. In 1947 Ed Beaulieu Jr. joined his father in the business and Springer's moved to its current site at 580 Congress near the intersection with Forest Avenue. Meet the Portland team here.

    BATH HISTORY

    Springer's Bath located in the historic downtown dates to 1879 and originally was called A.G. Page Co. Purchased in 1932 by Massachusetts entrepreneur Frank Freeman, Springer's acquired it in 1979. This treasure of the mid-coast appears today as it did in 1870's with its original storefront, mahogany cabinets installed by the Page family, a 14-foot high ceiling, a checkerboard marble floor, and classic hanging brass lamps over the floor cases. Meet the Bath team here.

    PORTSMOUTH HISTORY

    The company purchased the Portsmouth location in 1971 from the widow of Herman Page, who'd been one of the first certified gemologists in New England. Springer's-Portsmouth was located at the Vaughan Street Mall for nearly 30 years before relocating in 2000 to 100 Market Street, an upscale, five-story building on the corner of Market and Hanover Street in the heart of downtown Portsmouth.

    "It's always a pleasure working with the Springer's staff (Hey Jen!). I've worked with Springer's to re-purpose stones, find anniversary/birthday/xmas gifts for my wife, and even purchase myself a watch. They take the time to understand your style (or your spouses) and get you the right thing for the right time. Their service and communication shines every time. They are a great go-to jeweler!"

    "I had the pleasure to have Christie help me find the perfect engagement ring for my girlfriend. She was very helpful from day one. I could tell that she takes her job very seriously and really cared that I got exactly what I was looking for. She helped me throughout the whole process, in the store and out of the store, available for any questions or concerns that I had. I recommend that anyone who goes into Springers to ask for Christie!"

    "I recently had the pleasure of working with Springers Jewelers to have my engagement ring resized. Their attention to detail and service they provided was beyond amazing. I worked closely with Kelly who got me in ASAP and made me feel so well taken care of. I couldn’t recommend Kelly or Springers Jewelers more to anyone who is looking for incredible service and an awesome experience!"

    "Springers is our family's go-to Jeweler. They've taken care of 3 generations of our family and we cannot recommend them highly enough! Their customer service is unparalleled - they take time to truly listen to your needs, recommend and weigh different options for you, and always offer helpful suggestions, always being patient throughout the process. From a technical side, they are equally excellent. They also have very hard to find rings and watches that we haven't been able to find anywhere else. Thanks for everything Lilly and Berry!"
