Here is some background information on Original by Robert:
Robert Levey, David Jaffe, and Irving Landsman founded the Fashioncraft Jewelry Company NYC in 1942. Landsman left in 1951, and the company changed its name to Robert Originals, Inc.
The company jewelry went by the name of Robert or Original by Robert.
Their designs have natural and floral motifs with the use of faux pearls, colored glass, crystal beads, and high quality imported rhinestones set on gilded filigree open wire and openwork mountings.
The company’s advertisement in the 1940s indicated that the jewelry was hand crafted with fine details that possibly expert jewelers could mistake the stones for genuine precious jewels. Because of its excellent design, workmanship and materials, the jewelry sold at a high price.
The firm supplied jewelry to the motion picture industry.
Levey retired in 1975. Mark: "Original by Robert" 1942-1979 with a copyright symbol after 1955
