Founded by Mildred and Vern Schervem, the company’s name Milvern has the first three letters from the names of its founders. Launched in 1954, the Milvern Originals jewelry company was located in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles County, California. Unfortunately, the company was active for a few years. Noteworthy, the jewelry designers of the company created all decorations by hand. Hand made of porcelain and hand painted, each decoration is unique, and no two items are exactly alike.
Traditionally, the most popular shape was round with the gilded edges “pinched up” to resemble a square or triangle. Also, there were squares, rectangles, diamonds, quarter moons, painter’s palettes, leaves, teardrops, and plates, amongst others.
Noteworthy, all the clips, pins, or earrings had a paper Milvern sticker, instead of traditional signature stamped or engraved on the back.
The company seized to exist in late 1960s, so every Milvern decoration is vintage rarity desirable for collectors of vintage jewelry.
