When David Lisner (born in Germany in 1846) was 18 years old, his family emigrated to New York. David’s brothers, cousins ​​and other family members founded the D.Lisner Co. in New York in 1935.
Initially, they imported all products, including jewelry, from Europe. Until about the mid-30s, the Lisner family was a major distributor of Elsa Schiaparelli’s jewelry. Also, the company was engaged in the sale of Lanvin Violet jewelry.
During World War II, many American companies faced the problem of being unable to import jewelry from Europe. Many companies have closed their offices in Europe, including Lisner. However, this prompted them to open their own production in the United States. So, Lisner opened production in the jewelry capital of America, Providence, Rhode Island. In addition to their own production, some of the jewelry for the company was made by other manufacturers.
Already in the 1950s, after the death of the founder of the company, mass production of costume jewelry began, the quality of which was at its best. Noteworthy, advertisements for Lisner jewelry often appeared in fashion magazines, mostly in the 1940s and 1960s. The company was highly successful and the family business expanded.
