Pakula vintage costume jewelry
The American jewelry brand Pakula (Jewelry Co) originated in Chicago in 1932 and ceased to exist in 1997.
Pakula jewelry is extremely rare and in high demand among collectors of vintage costume jewelry.
The range of jewelry was very diverse. The company offered to the public both – home-made jewelry and did wholesale sales of costume jewelry and accessories made by other companies. Among them, in particular, were DeLizza, Elster and Hollycraft.
Without exception, all Pakula decorations demonstrated their impeccable quality and expressive design. Traditionally, the Pakula craftsmen used metal alloys of gold and silver tones, faux pearls and high quality rhinestones. Also, they used fashionable material at the time – colored enamel, which, in combination with the gold surface formed an unusually beautiful duet.
