George B. Jaques and William E. Marcus, son of Herman Marcus, formed a partnership in New York City in the early 1880's. They experimented with various coloured stones, testing the conventional palette and urged Americans to seek out “daring and original” gemstones by publishing a book in 1882 entitled “Something About Neglected Gemstones”. Marcus' father, Herman, left his position at Tiffany & Co. to join his son's firm, and along with William and another son, George Elder Marcus, they bought out Jaques, forming Marcus & Co. in 1892.
