Albert Weiss, who gained experience by working at Coro, founded the Weiss Company in 1942. Albert designed the jewelry and much was produced in his own factory. The factory ceased operations in 1971.
During the 1940's, World War II era, Weiss, as well as some other American jewelry companies, contracted some of their production to silversmiths in Mexico. These partnerships produced some of the most gorgeous creations of this period and these items are very scarce in today's marketplace. This beautiful set consists of a modern design link bracelet measuring 7 1/2" in length and 1 3/8" in width with a box clasp. One link is stamped "Sterl - Weiss" and "STIL" within a circle. The earrings design mirror one link of the bracelet and measure 1 3/8" in length and 7/8" in width with clip-backs. Each is stamped ""Sterl - Weiss - 925 - Mexico" and "STIL" within a circle. Wonderful vintage condition with no damages; one link shows a small repair on the back-side.
