DEROSA JEWELRY 1934
to mid-1950s
Let me begin by confessing that I am just wild
about DeRosa jewelry. It’s been one of my top favorites for almost 30 years, so
let me know if you have any for sale. I will always pay really fair
prices for pieces that I like.

Ralph DeRosa jewelry is known for its intricate and layered
designs, high quality, unusual stones and translucent enameling. A few
of the jewelry lines were designed by Elvira but I do not know who
designed the rest. His wife was Virginia De Rosa and she and their
two daughters, Teresa and Vera (Elvira), also participated in the company.
According the Deanna Cera’s book "Amazing Gems" on page 142, Fred Block
Inc may have manufactured some jewelry for DeRosa too, but not everyone
agrees with this. She dates that from
1935-1955. DeRosa
jewelry designs include floral, figural, retro motifs, as well as designs inspired by
some of the precious jewelry of past eras.

DeRosa jewelry is not easy to find because not many of each design were
made, but is certainly more than worth the search. After years of
collecting and selling this wonderful brand, I have found that the
majority of their pieces were signed, so beware unsigned attributions
where there is no reference material to substantiate it. This firm was
at 404 Fourth Street in New York City and created jewelry from the
mid-1930s until the mid-1950s.

As a serious collector, one of the best things about this company is
that not a lot of it was made. Many of the pieces shown below are the
only ones I have seen of their kind in all the years I’ve been handling
vintage jewelry. One exception is the cupid riding on a pearlized cloud
brooch, which I see very often. An example of it is shown here on this
page. To me, that and their brooches using tumbled uncut stones are much less interesting than the other DeRosa
pieces, and my guess is that they were made later.

Hand painted illustrations from the De Rosa Jewelry Company
seem to have been the first step in the design process. These miniature
works of art are from a collection of over 250 similar illustrations
that I am happy to own and use as a reference. Several are dated in the
1940’s, and many have hand written notes about how each piece should be
produced. Many jewelry designers never
worked on paper first, but for those who did, these illustrations are
illuminating as to the thought process and
design sense that went into creating this amazing jewelry.

Made in the 1940s, it is 2-1/2" by 1-3/4". Included are red, green and
clear rhinestones. One rhinestone on the left has a minute chip
just at the very tip, but it requires a magnifying glass to see it. It’s
accented with glass pearls and clear rhinestones. The leaves and buds
are of green and brown enamel work and they are really lovely. It is signed "R
DeRosa" on the back. Note: A brooch in this design but in different colors can be seen in
the wonderful Deanna Cera book "Amazing Gems" on page 126, but her brooch is not
signed so she didn’t know it was by DeRosa.

I is signed "DeRosa" on the back. The gold tone finish on the bottom of the
basket is partly missing, but this is hard to see when
the clip is worn. The lattice basket and bow on top just adds a bit more
interest to this charming clip. This is in good vintage condition other than some grayed rhinestones
and the missing gold tone finish on the bottom.

DEROSA PEACOCKS

The intricate detail and luminous translucent green
enameling make this one of my favorite of the DeRosa designs. It never
ceases to amaze me how much skill and care it must have taken to design and
create these beautiful pieces of jewelry. Suspended from the mouth of the
birds is a glass pearl that moves as the jewelry does, a nice extra touch.
These were made in 1941 to 1942 according to Women’s Wear Daily and other
advertisements, and in one of them they are called "Kingfishers" rather than
peacocks, but that would be
CHINESE Kingfishers,
a bird which I had not seen
before. Yet another ad called them "ducks". They still look more like peacocks to me with their showy
tails and beautiful coloring. I am grateful to Liz Gross for pointing the
Chinese Kingfisher information out to me.

DEROSA FLOWERS
The fantasy and marvelous creativity of
these designs make the DeRosa flower jewelry a joy to own and wear. I
really admire the multiple layers
that give them so much dimension and the enamel work that is rich and often translucent
as well. DeRosa often uses unusual stones, too, in different shapes and
sometimes in unusual materials like the peach colored ceramic flower in the
clip right below here.

DEROSA design art work for an
open rose flower brooch or clip.




DEROSA
lavender and green enameled tulip flower dress clip with artificial pearl
stamen and clear rhinestone accents, circa 1940, 2-1/2" by
2-1/8". Fabulous translucent enameling typical of DeRosa enhances this
three-dimensional piece. Also shown
is the
DEROSA original design art work
which would have been done for approval before this clip would have been put into production, a
gouache on tissue which is a rare piece. As you can see, a few
changes were made in the final design when it was produced.

pink flower fur clip with a circle of upright unfoiled pink rhinestones,
each in a keystone shape, around a glass imitation pearl center with a white enameled
halo around it. Some of the clear
rhinestones that have grayed, but they are tiny so it is hard to notice. The
petals are enameled in two shades of pink and a gold tone fleur-de-lis
shaped curls over the top of each petal, lined with clear rhinestones.
There are smaller glass pearls between each petal. On the back of the
clip are catches
so that this could have been added to a necklace and worn that way as well. It is 2"
across and in very good vintage
condition. Made in the 1940s, the multiple layers and abundance of detail in
this are just spectacular! Only DeRosa made jewelry like this.

signed, it does use the unusual keystone-shaped pink rhinestones in a way
that I have only seen on other DeRosa pieces, as well as the multiple layers
for which they were known. The two pieces of faceted red rhinestones are invisibly
set, and each looks like four segments when it is actually only one. The center is
made of topaz-colored rhinestones, and there are clear rhinestones all
around the center and down the stems of the clip. One of the pink stones has
a small chip. This was converted long ago from a clip to a brooch, and it
would have been signed on the top of the clip. The last image shows a vintage original

fur clip with round faceted yellow crystal disks, green enameled stems
and clear rhinestones all set in gold tone metal, 4" by 2-1/3". Circa 1940, this
is a very unusual clip with round faceted stones topped by green enameled
bracts and stems and clear rhinestone accents. Some of the clear stones have
turned gray as often happens with age, and the finish has wear on the high
spots, but
it is in good vintage condition. NOTE: We have also had this in blue, item
number 36703 below here.

hinged bangle bracelet with a marvelous sheath of flowers set with

chain and is signed on the inside "R DeRosa". It is 7" around the inside and
about 5/8" wide, and the finish does show some wear. Made in the 1940s, it’s an
unusual design, but then DeRosa bracelets are a bit unusual and hard to find in
the first pace.
