    Black, Starr & Frost was founded in 1810 in downtown Manhattan. It is believed to be this country's oldest continuously operating jeweler and, in 1833, was the first to use plate glass windows for merchandise display, thus innovating the concept of window shopping. One of America's most respected jewelry firms for over 200 years, its prestigious clientele has included the American elite of the Gilded Age, royalty, and celebrities. Black, Starr & Frost was among the illustrious jewelers mentioned in the song "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend," famously sung by Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film "Gentlemen Prefer Blonds."
