Not many know about this company and those who do are most likely serious vintage/antique Costume jewelry Collectors. Even so, some jewelers and collectors are astonished to know that "11 W 30 ST INC" and Dodds (Doddz) are one and the same manufacturer. In 1952, William Dodds and Company was a popular and successful plastics industry located in Newark, NJ. In response to the U.S. jewelry boom, Dodds decided to take full advantage of the opportunity and open a subsidiary with a partner. It was called "Jewel Creations." William Dodds took over as the sole owner of the company in the 1960's, and used "Dodds" as the signature. Often, the settings were sold and you picked your rhinestones and set them in yourself. Rare design in Wonderful condition.
