Longevity is not only rare, but something to be admired. The faster society goes through trends, the greater the accomplishment of people who stick with something. Douglas Brothers Jewelry in Troy, Alabama garners tremendous respect as a 143-year-old company. Passing down from one generation to the next, this incredible retail jewelry store has its roots in southern plantations and a need to make a living after the war. It’s the true example of a small independent who has been doing business the right way for an awfully long time.
