Richelieu costume jewellery
Founded in the early 1900s, the company Joseph H. Meyer Bros Co., based in Brooklyn, New York, first used the brand known as Richelieu in 1911. Richelieu produced jewelry for both women and men, in a variety of styles, fashionable during the XX century.
Traditionally inexpensive, Richelieu jewellery became quite popular for its design with artificial pearls, as well as artificial coral. Most of the works of the Richelieu brand, which the collector can meet today, date from 1960-1970s. Richelieu jewellers carefully and masterfully made spectacular decorations of polished metal of gold tone with artificial pearls, clear crystal or colored cabochons. There are decorations with the use of antique metal, but they cost a little more.
In 1978, the Lisner jewelry house, led by David Lisner, bought this company. Accordingly, from that moment they began to label their costume jewellery Lisner-Richelieu. In 1985, the company completed its existence, leaving a stunning collection of jewelry made of Lucite, Austrian rhinestones Aurora Borealis, and rock crystal of high quality.
