Hamilton & Hamilton, Jr. was a jewelry manufacturer that closed its doors in 1922 and due to the obvious Art Deco influence in the design, this piece can be dated circa 1920. H&H strived for excellence and achieved a reputation for consistency in superior quality and workmanship above all. I have only ever owned two pieces by this maker and both are superb examples of period jewelry in heirloom quality.
