The history of the Alice jewelry brand began in May 1950 in Providence, Rhode Island, owned by the Alice Jewelry Company of Providence. The company produced high quality fashion jewelry in modernist, geometric, or leaf designs. Handcrafted in sterling silver and gold, mostly screw back earrings or ear clips. Traditionally, the maker’s mark included “alice” in lowercase script letters, or “alice” and “PAT.PEND”. The company ceased to exist in the 1970s.
Noteworthy, the Alice trademark is often confused with the better known Alice Caviness brand. However, these are completely different companies that are easy to distinguish by labeling, design style and materials used. Alice Caviness founded her eponymous company in 1940s in New York and branded her jewelry with her full name in block uppercase letters.
