J.E Caldwell & Co was founded by James Emmot Caldwell in 1839, and was a major jewellery retailer and silversmith located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The firm became a partnership of Bennett & Caldwell and was redesignated to J.E. Caldwell & Co in 1841. In 1876, the company exhibited at The Centennial Exposition.

Following Caldwell's death in 1881, his son James Albert led the company. In 1952, Austion Homer became the president. However, following a decline, the company was purchased by Henry Birks & Sons of Montreal. It was later acquired by Carlyle & Co of North Carolina in 1992.
