JEWELRY ADVERTISING

Bogoff
Jewelry
1946- about 1959
Chicago,
Illinois



One of the most exciting reference sources for
attributing and dating vintage jewelry is the advertising in magazines from
years past. These wonderful old ads illustrate how jewelry was worn, when it
was made, and how it coordinated with the styles of the time.


Most of these ads were shared courtesy of Julie Scarlett, who sells vintage ads under the seller name papercharm on
ebay. An added thanks to Pat Seal, who was the source of the dates for many
of them. And last, a big thanks to Beth Rowlands of Emerald City Costume
Jewelry who so generously shared her extensive Bogoff collection.

BOGOFF jewelry is distinctive in it’s
style and design, as can be seen in the illustrations below. Begun in
about 1946 in Chicago, Illinois, it is thought that they made their last
jewelry in the late 1950’s. Some of their ads state they had locations
in New York, Chicago, Milwaukee and Los Angeles and Gay Bee Jewelry is
mentioned in some of their ads. Most pieces use smaller rhinestones set in
silver tone, tending toward the delicate and feminine.
