HAR JEWELRY






HAR

The HARGO Jewelry Company
of New York made jewelry thought to date in the late 50’s and into the
60’s, but it is otherwise something of a mystery. Some of their best
pieces are the wildly creative figural brooches with fantasy stones like those
shown below. Although some Har pieces resemble the jewelry by "Art", Har also used certain stones in common
with Florenza.

HAR dragon hinged bangle
circa 1955
Gone tone metal with green enameling, irregularly shaped
iridescent stones and aurora borealis rhinestones. Snakes and serpents
have for years been a popular motif, as these pieces on either side
demonstrate!

Circa 1849
The design of this bracelet is amazingly like that of the Har
green dragon. 18K ENAMEL ROSE CUT SALAMANDER BANGLE.
Belgian mid 19th century, control mark representing a horse’s head (that was in use in Belgium from
about 1831). This style, in gold with enamel and shiny stones, was also fashion
in France at that time. It is embellished with green enamel, its eyes are 2 red
stones lined with gold. In the middle of its body is set a line of rose cut strass stones. On its head is set an old mine cut strass
stone. The end of its curly tail shows 39 rose cut diamonds. Engraved with a date: ‘Le 6 juin
1849’ and 2 names with a crown: ‘Albert à Nancy’ (Albert to Nancy).

enameled accents. Inside the genie’s ball is a peacock blue rhinestone star. This
spectacular bracelet is 7-1/4" by 1-5/8". Circa 1960, it’s in excellent

best costume jewelry bracelets ever made!
