Kollmar Jourdan vintage costume jewelry
The history of the Kollmar & Jourdan jewelry company began in the jewelry capital of Germany, the city of Pforzheim, in 1885. Initially, the founders of the company Emil Kollmar and Wilhelm Jourdan focused on the production of watch cases, straps and jewelry with silver and gold plating. Also, they produced gold plated nickel chains, and later American double gold plated chains. The company expanded its production and became known both in Germany and throughout Europe and America. So, after fifteen years of successful work, in 1900, the company employed almost 400 workers. Traditionally, the craftsmen of the company marked the products with the initials KJ crossed by an arrow.
As a result of World War II, the factory was destroyed. However, a few years later it was restored and returned to its former glory, focusing on the production of jewelry. The company ceased to exist in 1975.
Handcrafted, high-quality gold and silver jewelry marked with KJ are now highly collectible.
