B.Blumenthal vintage costume jewelry
Each piece labeled B. Blumenthal is an absolute rarity and incredible beauty, grace and tenderness. The history of the company began back in 1877, when Benjamin Blumenthal founded B. Blumenthal & Co in New York, USA. However, the company initially imported and distributed buttons to the emerging textile market. Due to taxes on imported ocean pearl buttons, Blumenthal opened a factory to produce freshwater pearl buttons in Lansing on the Mississippi river. Buttons have embodied the art of jewelry using materials such as enamel, shells, metals, and since the 1900s, Bakelite, plastic, lucite, wood, cork and leather.
For a very short period of time, from the 1940s to the 1960s, the company made costume jewelry for the Edwardian fashion of the time. Made of brass, metal with gold or silver plating, inlaid with crystals, rhinestones, art glass, these jewelry is now a rarity. Accordingly, they are collectible and the price of these jewelry will increase every year.
