CINER: 1892 - PresentCiner Manufacturing Company NY was founded by Emanuel Ciner who opened his own fine jewelry store in Manhattan, NY in 1892 after having emigrated to the U.S. from Austria in 1886. The company produced expensive, high quality, well designed, timeless and fashionable fine jewelry including wedding and engagement rings. In 1931, Ciner began mass producing a broad range of costume jewelry that resembled fine jewelry and marketed his products through select high-priced stores. Each bead, stone and pearl was hand- strung and hand-knotted. The metals used were 18k gold, platinum, sterling and white metal. Ciner’s fashionable evening jewelry had the look of luxury for the rich and famous. With the use of smaller colored stones, Swarovski rhinestones that glisten like diamonds, and imitation gemstones, glass cabochons, and simulated pearls, the pieces produced imitated the real jewels. The Ciner Company’s logo was "The Tiffany of Costume Jewelry". Generations of family members followed Emanuel in designing the jewelry lines. Smaller color stones than the normal were used, creating, in the jewelry produced, the look of fine jewelry. The use of pearls, especially made for Ciner by Japanese artisans, are glass-based beads that have been coated many times with a luminescent finish that gives the pearls the look of cultured pearls. Early Ciner pieces of jewelry produced before World War II were frequently not marked. Mark: "CINER with or without a copyright symbol". Ciner, is still in business and continues to use the finest materials and workmanship in their jewelry lines of more than 7,000 pieces leaning toward modern designs.
