The history of the American jewelry company Oscar Charlin Co. covers a fairly short period, no more than one decade. California native, Allen Nathan Charlin (7 Sep 1936 Los Angeles – 23 Jul 2011 Beverly Hills, Los Angeles) registered his company on March 9, 1955 and named it after his father Oscar. Registered at 344 So Bedford Dr Beverly Hills California, the corporation existed until the mid-1960s. Any jewelry from this company is considered a vintage rarity, and certainly collectible.
Traditionally, the designers used metal alloy, silver or gold plating, Aurora Borealis crystals, rhinestones, and artificial pearls. Noteworthy, such famous jewelry company as Delizza & Elster has created many jewelry pieces for this company. Marked “Oscar Charlin” in oval frame, these exquisite designs are very recognizable – with an abundance of crystals and rhinestones.
