          Established in 1940 and spanning three generations of family ownership, Kentshire Galleries is one of the foremost dealers of fine period and estate jewelry. Kentshire was founded as the United States Silver Co. by Benson Imberman, who established himself as a dealer in Georgian and modern silver. His son, Fred Imberman, and son-in-law, Robert Israel, joined the firm in 1968 and, within a few years, began building a world class inventory of antique English furniture and objects.

In the 1980s, the vision of the firm expanded with the addition of antique and period jewelry under the aegis of sisters-in-law Ellen Israel and Marcie Imberman. They brought the same exacting standards to their jewelry collection that their husbands had to the furniture: excellence of design, fine workmanship, and authenticity. To those criteria, the women brought an eye for contemporary fashion and wearability.

In 1988, Kentshire established a free-standing boutique in New York's premier luxury store, Bergdorf Goodman. Their antique and estate jewelry department continues to occupy a select location on the store's seventh floor.

Carrie Imberman and her brother, Matthew, joined the firm in 2004, after working in fashion and contemporary art, respectively. As the third generation of the family to lead Kentshire, they continue to refine the gallery's founding vision: buying and selling outstanding jewelry and objects of enduring design and elegance.  The gallery exhibits at many of the finest antique shows throughout the country.
