ROBERT OR ORIGINAL BY ROBERT: 1942 - 1979
Began in New York City as The Fashioncraft Jewelry Co. and was renamed Robert Originals Inc. in the early 1960s. Early jewelry was marked Fashioncraft Robert. "Robert" refers to Robert Levy, one of the original founders of Fashioncraft. This jewelry was marked “Robert” or “Original by Robert.”
Robert designs are often floral, and intricately crafted with very high quality materials – faux pearls, colored glass, crystal beads, imported rhinestones, set in a lovely gold tone filigree, using open wire and openwork mountings. Styles are often similar to Miriam Haskell and DeMario designs, although they were not related. Because of the superb designs, materials, and workmanship, Robert jewelry has always sold at a high price, and are very, very collectible.
