Signed Labella vintage costume jewelry (1990s)
Located at 70-72-74 Bowery street of New York City Chinatown, Labella Jewelers Inc manufactured high quality costume jewelry for about a decade. The company’s craftsmen created jewelry by hand using metal alloys of gold and silver tones. Also, the design of jewelry from this brand is characterized by the abundant use of multi-color rhinestones, crystals and art glass imitating natural stones.
Each piece is marked with the stylized word Labella with an elongated L as an underline and on an oval cartouche. The design and style of the brooches is reminiscent of vintage jewelry from the 1930s and 40s.
Incorporated in 1991, the company ceased to exist before 2000.
