The first known information about the firm of Dreicer & Co. dates to the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition held in St. Louis. J. Dreicer & Son represented the Parisian dealer A. Eknayan. From 1910 to the mid 1920s, their jewellery was the equal of Parisian styles. The firm maintained a shop at 560 Fifth Avenue in New York with a branch located at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago. They were the first American jewellers to introduce the latest diamond cuts from Paris. In 1923, the firm was liquidated and the following year, Cartier in New York bought Dreicer's stock for $2.5 million. Dreicer's collection of paintings was given to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
