The earliest jewelry was made ​​more for her part in the city of Groningen. There were only a few specialists: they bought the jewelry at the leading silversmiths, such as the Van Giffens, Hendrik Hubert or Reinder Scheltens. Gradually came up a specialization around 1840, in which the silversmiths in the peat start to come. In particular, stamping and wire and cantillewerk there was made ​​much, which is understandable when one considers that these techniques are labor intensive and therefore attractive to a poor area.
