Starting out as a jewelry house that outfitted the millinery and couturier trades, Vogue jewelry was founded in 1936 by Harold Shapiro, Jack Gilbert and George Grant. When the Vogue jewelry company created an American flag pin for the hat company Mr. John, Vogue jewelry surged in popularity. Thriving in the 1950s, Vogue introduced Austrian crystals and beaded ropes to American women's jewelry boxes. The Shapiros were the first to leave the company in 1962 and the company eventually closed a decade later.
I have found some wonderful pieces of Vogue Jewelry over the years of searching. They use the best materials and creative designs. This piece is no exception. The 22 inch chain is sapphire blue rhinestones, each topped with a tiny crystal rhinestone and set in a rhodium plated setting. Spectacular worn alone but the very large pendant can be attached to the necklace or worn as a brooch/pin. The pendant/pin measures 2.75 x 2.25 inches. Surrounded by the sapphire rhinestones, the center is Mother of Pearl glass with a decoration on the front. Worn together or alone, each piece is a stand out.
