The history of American brand Sandor began in 1938, when Sandor Goldberger founded it. Characteristic of his decorations – pastel flowers in a frame made of silver, decorated with enamel and rhinestone. In addition, he produced the figurines, which are now rare. Unfortunately, the company ceased its operation in 1972. Undoubtedly, Sandor Collectible Jewellery show original design and high craftsmanship. Most of the pieces released in 1939 had marking “Sandor”, but since 1940 “Sandor Goldberger”.
Noteworthy, Goldberger attempted to make his decorations look like real jewel ornaments. Therefore, often produced in silver and the company masters tried to hide the less noble metals under a layer of gold. In addition, in the production of Sandor jewelry often used black (or “Japanese”) coating, which in addition to aesthetic, served a practical function. In particular, to avoid rust on metal they covered it with a patina.

Besides, in decoration Sandor Jewelry often used clear and colored sequins, artificial pearls and colored enamels. And enamels became “calling card” of the brand after Beatrice Grace McGowan became a leading designer. Noteworthy, she decided that the girls’ best friends are not diamonds, but flowers. Accordingly, with this began “flower” period, which brought fame to the company. McGowan made delicate flowers, lush bouquets, swollen buds of branches, on sketches. The decorations made of silver, gold-plated or black lacquered alloys, decorated with high-quality enamels, seemed about to come to life.
