Amsterdam, May 30th 2013 – Ace & Spyer Jewelers, located at Koningsplein 1 in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) has been completely renovated. The boutique, founded in the year 1729, is situated in a monumental building with Art Deco facade on the corner of the legendary Flower market.
Documents found in the official archive of the City of Amsterdam indicate that Mr. Samuel Spyer incorporated his jewelry business located at Kalverstraat 201 in the heart of Amsterdam on April 27th, 1729 and named the business S. Spyer. After the Second World War, the ownership of the company has been switched several times and in 1998 the jeweler Mr. David Ben Joseph, became the proud owner. The master goldsmith Ben Joseph incorporated his jewelry business at Kalverstraat 72 in Amsterdam in 1975 and in 1998 he involved the name into Ace & Spyer at the merger of both jewelry boutiques.
