COMPANY INFORMATION: There is a line of vintage jewelry called HAR, that every collector should know about. A rare and highly sought after line that was produced in short supply by a company called HARGO. Hargo was a New York company that produced jewelry for about 10 years in the mid century. Their designs are world reknown and featured in various collector's guides. Little is known about this company, and much less for the average buyer of 50's 60's vintage jewelry. Har jewelry is hallmarked c with a circle and HAR. Har jewelry was featured in the 1990's Jewelry of Fantasy Exhibit propelling this jewelry to international fame. The figurals produced by this company are exceedingly rare and much sought after by collectors. One of the founders apparently died unexpectedly and much of the history of this company was also buried with him. There has also been some speculation in some collector's books that this company later went on to produce a jewelry line called "ART". This may be true .If you examine ART SIGNED PIECES you will see a remarkable resemblance in the way these pieces were crafted.
