GFMW vintage costume jewelry
The history of the company began in 1968, when the married couple Jan Palombo and her husband Michael Brothers founded their own jewelry workshop GFMW Inc. The Great Falls Metal Works was located in an old silk factory near historic Great Falls in Paterson, New Jersey. Their daughter Flora Anne Brothers, who has helped her parents create jewelry since childhood, later studied jewelry in Europe. Back home, she joined the family business and became the company’s chief designer.
Traditionally hand crafted, all jewelry was made from 925 sterling silver, 14 carat gold, natural stones and minerals. The company is still operating, but there are no brooches in their range for a long time. Produced in the 1960s – 1980s, these high quality brooches demonstrate a very interesting design, exquisite workmanship and are collectible.
