In 1945 Panetta opened his own company in New York City. His designs ranged from rhinestone encrusted Art Deco styles to enameled figurals and always had exquisite detail. He upheld a tradition of quality and prided himself on copying the ‘fine’ look. “It had to look real or out it went!”
Panetta is a much respected mark. It was never inexpensive new. Panetta jewelry is not as plentiful in the secondary market because of its limited production runs and high initial prices.
