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 womens jewelry boxes. The Shapiros were the first to leave the company in 1962 and the company eventually closed a decade later.
Once in awhile I come across a great piece of Vogue signed jewelry. I don't know how big the company was but the jewelry is not been easily found. This beautiful double strand of deep garnet red glass beads is all hand knotted and finished with a tongue and groove clasp covered with the same beads and clearly signed on the back. The perfect length for ease of wear whether for casual or dress.
Size: 20" long; Condition: Very Good; Circa: Early 1950s.
