The history of American corporation “Accessories Associates Inc.” began in 1962 in the jewelry capital of the United States – North Providence, Rhode Island. Originally, AAI was named Femic and was the first of thirteen jewelry brands registered by Accessories Associates Inc. in different years. In particular, Femic (1971), Exclusively Kenco (last filed 1981), So Chick! (1990), Sensitive Touch (1991), Solar Accents (1992), American Woman (1992), Frenzi (1993), Adrienne Picard (1993), Young Expressions (1994), Young Fashions (1995), Friend To Friend (1995), Special Moments and Anderson & Barnes (1995).
In 1987, the owners of the corporation renamed Femic into AAI, which was a symbolic abbreviation for Accessories Associates Inc. Noteworthy, today the status of Accessories Associates Inc. – cancelled, as the company ceased to exist on July 20, 2002.
If we talk about vintage jewelry marked with AAI, these are often seasonal, especially Christmas decorations with images of Santa Claus, snowmen, reindeers, Christmas trees, embodied in brooches and pendants. Traditionally, the craftsmen of this company used jewelry alloys of gold and silver tones, rhinestones, artificial pearls, crystals and enamel.
