Meanwhile, Sandor Goldberger attempted to make his decorations look like real jewel ornaments. Therefore, often produced in silver and the less noble metals, masters of the company tried to hide it under a layer of gold. In addition, in the production of Sandor jewelry often used black (or “Japanese”) coating, which in addition to aesthetic, served a practical function. In particular, to avoid rust on metal they covered it with a patina.

Besides, in decoration Sandor Jewelry often used clear and colored sequins, artificial pearls and colored enamels. And enamels became “calling card” of the brand after Beatrice Grace McGowan became a leading designer. Noteworthy, she decided that the girls’ best friends are not diamonds, but flowers. Accordingly, with this began “flower” period, which brought fame to the company. McGowan made delicate flowers, lush bouquets, swollen buds of branches, on sketches. The decorations made of silver, gold-plated or black lacquered alloys, decorated with high-quality enamels, seemed about to come to life.

Although along with the “flower” line under the name Sandor produced other collections of jewelry. However, it’s thin and delicate enamel flowers became the main object of desire of fans of Sandor of the middle of the last century, and collectors of antique and vintage costume jewelry of this century. Becoming once the proud owner of a bouquet of Sandor, then it is almost impossible to confuse this product with ornaments of any other brand.
