Hallmark cards vintage costume jewelry
Based in Kansas American private company HALLMARK is famous worldwide as one of the largest manufacturers of greeting cards. Noteworthy, it has its history since 1910! First, it was Joyce Hall alongside with his brother, who began to import cards from Europe, and then print themselves beautiful Christmas cards. However, in addition to printed products and wrapping paper, the company also produced gifts, Christmas-tree decorations. Also, starting in the 1960s, the company began producing cute costume jewelry.
Traditionally, Hallmark costume jewelry focuses on family values. In particular, decorations for birthday, Mother’s Day, family, faith and love stories. Made with the use of bakelite, jewelry alloy, porcelain, plastic and enamel – all these bright decorations are made by hand.
The marking on the back of each item can include HMK CDS, short for Hallmark Cards, as well as full stamp “Hallmark Cards”.
Noteworthy, the company has registered about twenty trademarks on production of costume jewelry. In particular, “Just For You” (1982-1990), “The Finishing Touch” (1981-1989), “Accents” (1979-1988), “Aura By Hallmark” (1977-1984), “Pretty Piggies” (1990-91), Yum Yums (1990-1998), Color Gear (1986-1991), etc.
