The history of Beau Jewels trademark began in 1948 in New York and lasted for more than three decades. The trademark founder was Bowman Foster Inc., the New York based company incorporated in 1931. The company stopped making jewelry in 1979 and ceased to exist in 1980.
Notable, despite the similarity of the name with other jewelry brands, such as Beau Craft (Providence) and Beau Sterling, Beau Jewels is a completely different jewelry trademark.
Beau jewels craftsmen made their decorations using multi-colored stones, or more precisely, imitating precious stones of different colors, and Aurora Borealis rhinestones. Flowers and leaves are constantly repeating motifs, often in bright colors and unusual color combinations. Relatively inexpensive, many Beau Jewels pieces entered the reference books on vintage costume jewelry. In particular, Judith Miller’s reference book published in 2004.
Currently, the products of this company are collectible and rare.
“Beau”, translated as dandy, meant for those who kept up with the modern fashion of the time, but at the same time appreciated the classical style.
