Zentall vintage costume jewelry
Undoubtedly, the jewelry of this brand is of collectible value. The history of the company dates back to 1952, when Robert Zentall founded his own jewelry company ROBERT ZENTALL, INC. in Mount Vernon, NY. In addition to hand crafted jewelry, the designers created decorations for Christmas trees.
Noteworthy, stylish and high-quality designer costume jewelry marked “Zentall” became world famous very soon. This happened in particular, in 1954, thanks to the magazine Vogue. The designers of this company used both semi-precious stones, corals and lucite, art glass, faux pearls and enamels. As a base for decorations jewelers used a textured alloy of metals, sterling silver, pewter, and sometimes used gold plating. The company mainly produced jewelry in the Art Nouveau style and abstract forms, as well as funny brooches with images of animals and birds. The company’s jewelers focused on the texture of the material. Having worked for more than three decades, the company ceased to exist in 1984.
