Anda Modes vintage costume jewelry (1953-1981)

The history of the Anda Modes costume jewelry brand began in December 1953 in New York, New York. The founder and owner of the family business Anda Modes Inc was Manhattan native Samuel D Pressman (1905-1988). The company ceased to exist in September 1981.

The company’s craftsmen created high-quality brooches using metal alloys of gold and silver tones, art glass imitating natural stones, artificial pearls, crystals and rhinestones. Costume jewelry made in a classic, often floral design with an abundance of rhinestones, glass and crystals looks elegant and expensive.
It is noteworthy that from the very beginning of its foundation, the company participated in exhibitions on style and design held in New York. Thus, according to the 1958 and 1959 “The Allied Shoe Products Show” directory the company is listed as a leading manufacturer of shoe ornaments.

The maker’s mark on the back includes “Anda Modes” and “New York” on an oval cartouche.
Today, jewelry from this brand is extremely rare and has collectible value.
