Ralph De Rosa founded the Ralph De Rosa Company in NY in 1934. It was a family operated jewelry manufacturing company. The company marketed designs for Schiaparelli and found little time to produce and market their own designs and therefore limited production of their own jewelry lines. Some of their designs were not marked and sold to fine stores using their own hang tag as a mark. The company ceased operations in 1970
Ralph DeRosa jewelry is known for its complex dimensional design and high quality components. This set is inspired by designs used by the precious jewelry of the era. DeRosa jewelry is not easy to find but is certainly worth the search. This New York City firm made jewelry from the mid-1930's until the 1970's, but like many jewelry makers, their 1940's jewelry is the best.
