Crumrine Gold & Silversmiths is one of the world's largest and most progressive manufacturers of belt buckles, jewelry and accessories. Crumrine began as a small jewelry manufacturer in Santa Ana, California in 1948. Founded by Charles and Marjorie Crumrine, the operation grew to become Orange County's largest custom jewelry design, production and repair business.
In the early sixties, Charles began developing a specialized manufacturing process that allowed for the production of "hand-engraved" buckles and jewelry in large quantities. This process was the first of its kind in the world. Not only did this development satisfy the demands of the company's growing customer base, it established the company as one of the world's most innovative and capable western metal products manufacturers. Continued refinement in this process has allowed Crumrine to offer a product line that is recognized as the market leader in both value for the dollar and consistency in quality.
The Crumrine family relocated the company to Reno, Nevada in the fall of 1979. Now nestled against the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the Comstock silver mining region, Crumrine continues in the legacy of hand crafted products made in the U.S.A. From there, the company markets and distributes its products in territories in the continental U.S., Mexico and Canada.
Each buckle still receives the same hand craftsmanship, hand finishing and hand inspection that went into the company's earliest products. By using the latest tooling and manufacturing techniques, Crumrine maintains its long-standing edge in the categories of engraving depth, detail, luster of finish and overall merchandise selection. More than ever, Crumrine products are synonymous with the word "keepsake" .
Throughout its 50+ year history, the company has successfully maintained several important operating philosophies. The most notable of these is the company's continued use of the finest quality manufacturing materials available - without compromise. In addition, Crumrine is committed to the type of professional customer service that ensures real accountability. Crumrine also continues to focus its new product development efforts on creating original styles and designs, with the promise of meeting the latest fashion trends. Last but certainly not least, is Crumrine's commitment to the lifestyles it serves.
