He then had short stays in St. Petersburg and Copenhagen. He received his journeyman's certificate in 1828. He then moved to Christiania (now Oslo) and acquired burghership in 1832. In 1832, he founded the jewelers firm J.Tostrup and gradually expanding his business with more production equipment and better localities.

Tostrup held several positions in the goldsmith's guild and artisan associations. His firm made the original enameled insignia for the Order of St. Olav, when the order was established in 1848 and later in 1883 it was put in charge of the whole production. J. Tostrup received the title royal court jeweler, and Jacob Tostrup received the Norwegian King'sMedal of Merit in gold (Kongens fortjenstmedalje) and was appointed a Knight of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav for his work as a goldsmith.
