Indianapolis, Indiana based jewelry company Charles Reis produced high quality handmade costume jewelry for more than fifty years, from 1919 to 1971. However, in 1972 William Nichols bought the company and renamed it to Reis-Nichols, Inc. (Indianapolis, Indiana). Traditionally, Charles Reis Co designers used 12 K gold, and marked their decorations 12K GF alongside with the CR co hallmark. In addition, they used textured metal base, sterling silver, faux pearls, jade, rhinestones, crystals and enamel. The most common designs include leaves and flowers in classic or Art Deco style.
All products of this company are marked and desirable for lovers and collectors of vintage jewelry.
