Staret Jewelry




STARET is a jewelry company about whom little is known. The jewelry was made
for a brief period in the 1940’s, and they were probably
located in Chicago. There have always been rumors that they were affiliated
with Eisenberg, but this has been denied by Karl Eisenberg. Staret pieces are generally large, and the settings are often
enameled 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 collectors love the big hand brooches, especially
the Staret torch, the company’s most recognized piece.

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.
