HISTORY: Renoir was established in 1946 in Los Angeles, California by Jerry Fels and is best known for its uniquely shaped solid copper jewelry. The company grew out of the American Arts & Crafts movement. Copper was a popular choice for early 20th century metalworkers active in the Arts & Crafts design. From the beginning Fels created contemporary, abstract designs as part of the mid-century modern art movement that was reemerging.
