The history of the brand of costume jewelry labeled D Torem Renclif Inc began in 1970 in Providence, Rhode Island. It was a domestic business corporation led by Clifford Henry Stern (1921 – 2018). In fact, Clifford H. Stern was the president of two companies Renclif Inc., registered in New York and Providence.
The company’s chief designer was the talented jeweler, artist, photographer and author Dorothy Hehl Torem (born 1940). The maker’s mark respectively reflects the name of the jewelry designer and the name of the company.

The company’s workshop employed a team of 25 artisans and jewelers who created jewelry sold throughout the world. Traditionally, jewelry designs include environmental themes, as well as patriotic, animalistic and fashion motifs. To realize their creative ideas, designers used metal alloys, as well as gold, silver, and enamels.
The company’s profits reached several million dollars in the 1980s.
According to a database published in 2001 in the Rhode Island Manufacturers Register, the company was still active. However, it is most likely that after a change of ownership and a merger in the early 2000s, the company ceased producing costume jewelry.
