STARET

STARET is a company about
whom little is known. Their jewelry was made in the early 1940’s and they may have been
located in Chicago. There have always been rumors that they were affiliated
with Eisenberg, but this seems doubtful, even though the styles and sizes are somewhat
similar. Their pieces are generally large and the settings are often pot
metal.

STARET jewelry is big, showy and fun to wear.
The best pieces combine enameling and rhinestones like many of the ones
shown below.

STARET butterfly pin… that old classic from the 1940’s! It is unsigned,
but I have had these in several color combinations, both signed and
unsigned, before. It is 3 inches across with marvelous purple and clear
rhinestones. The clears show age in slight yellowing, as is true
with most of these butterfly pins that still have their original stones.
