Evelyne Alay vintage costume jewelry (1990s)
The history of the American jewelry brand “Evelyne Alay” spans a short period of less than a decade. Incorporated in 1996 in Miami Florida, Evelyne Alay Designs Inc. was a family business founded by Evelyne Leone (company president) and Joseph Leone.
Noteworthy, the company produced costume jewelry both under its own name and under the Perlas Elegancia brand (founded in 1998). The company’s craftsmen created fashion couture jewelry by hand, using gilding, silver, and art glass imitating semi-precious stones. A distinctive feature of the design of Perlas Elegancia necklaces, bracelets, earrings and brooches was the use of pearls made in Mallorca, Spain.
After eight years in the fashion jewelry market, Evelyne Alay Designs, Inc. ceased to exist in 2006.
Today, jewelry pieces marked Evelyne Alay and made mostly in 1996 – 2000 are quite rare and collectible.
