Gil d Agena vintage costume jewelry (1985-2004)
The history of the Gil d’Agéna jewelry brand began in 1985 in Toul, a suburb of Meurthe-et-Moselle in northeastern France. A small team of jewelers handcrafted high-quality bracelets, brooches, necklaces, pendants and earrings in modernist, classic and haute couture styles. Traditionally, craftsmen used bronze, gilding and silvering, as well as rhinestones, mother-of-pearl, resin and art glass imitating natural stones.
The markings on the oval cartouche included the full name of the brand Gil d’Agéna France and two letters GA in an oval. Also, some jewelry was sold with an attached foil tag with the brand’s logo. Incorporated in January 1985, Gil d’Agena Ltd. ceased to exist in June 2004.
