About Henry KOHN - For over 100 years, Henry Kohn & Sons was a high-quality jewelry institution in the city of Hartford, Connecticut.
Henry Kohn was born in Bohemia, Austria, in 1839. He arrived on the shores of America in 1865. Henry settled in Hartford, Connecticut, and started his small jewelry business. Three years later, he moved his firm to Rockville, but returned to Hartford seven years later, in 1875, where he settled in for good.
Kohn's eponymous company was a retail and wholesale diamond and precious gemstone establishment that enjoyed much success.
An 1886 article from the Hartford Courant called Henry Kohn "an enterprising diamond merchant" who had "built up a thoroughly respectable and profitable business." The report further stated that Kohn "is everywhere recognized as a gentleman of superior business attainments and thoroughly affable ways and manners."
