JEWELRY ADVERTISING


E

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.

EISENBERG "Topaz Quartz" 1944
Vogue Magazine
Only rarely did the Eisenberg do any 14 karat jewelry. The ad above shows a
bow pin, earrings and a ring. The pin is vermeil but the ring and earrings
are 14kt. There were several ring designs with the stones listed as
"Brazilian Topaz
Quartz".

EISENBERG ORIGINAL sterling with
gold wash bow pin and sterling vermeil screw back earrings with yellow
faceted unfoiled stones, circa 1943, brooch 2-7/8" by 2-1/3" earrings
1". The single center stone was called a "topaz quartz" by the company.
These bows are numbered.
Only once did the Eisenberg Company work in 14kt gold. In
1943, there was an ad for earrings and a ring in 14kt, set with Citrines (aka
Topaz Quartz). View #E35751

Brenda Nurenberg has a gorgeous
Eisenberg Fur clip,
shown above, that she later found a picture of in a 1937 Harper’s Bazaar
Magazine…

…However, in the
magazine, the fur clip is
done in precious diamonds, sapphires and a huge aquamarine. It was designed
by Black Frost Star and Gorham.
This is a perfect example of how costume jewelry emulated fine jewelry.





It is interesting that earrings
incredibly similar to the ones shown at the right are illustrated in this Schiaparelli ad from 1937. This ad
shows jewelry designs by Jean Schlumberger.
