Schrager vintage costume jewelry
Marked Jonne, or Schrager, such jewelry is quite rare and in high demand among lovers and collectors of vintage costume jewelry. Noteworthy, decorations marked “Jonne” appeared in the early 50s, and Schrager-labeled ornaments – in 1959. However, according to some pieces, the company also stamped their pieces as “House of Schrager 5th Ave.”. Traditionally, Schrager jewelers created decorations of classic designs with exceptional detailing, and always of high quality. They used gold and silver plated base metals, faux pearls, clear and colored rhinestones. Undoubtedly, this jewelry has a signature look, something between Miriam Haskell and Stanley Hagler. The company ceased operations in 1962.
Founded in 1925, H. M. Schrager & Co. had the main office at the 5th Avenue in New York. Due to many reasons, created from 1925 to 1940s costume jewelry is rarity. First of all, smaller production than the larger jewelry makers of the time. Also, their earlier pieces were not marked at all. According to sources, Schrager also created jewelry for other jewelry brands, in particular, for Staret. And this explains the similarity of some Schrager and Staret designs (for example, butterfly brooch in the below picture).
