Produced by one of the leading American manufacturers, Anson jewelry embodied high quality and the highest craftsmanship. Swedish born silversmith Olaf Anderson who emigrated to the United States from Sweden in 1929, owned the company for almost half a century. At first, he founded Anderson Tool & Die Co. (1938), which made tools for jewelry making. And during the WWII, the plant worked on military contracts. After the war, in 1945 he switched to the production of men’s accessories, including tie pins, money clips, cufflinks, collar holders, key rings and bracelets.
Traditionally, the craftsmen used sterling silver and silver with gilding, and sometimes – metal with silver plating. Noteworthy, in 1948, the company changed its name to Anson Inc. and since 1967, the brand has added women’s jewelry and accessories to its line. The highest quality products allowed the company to sell their brand products in the Tiffany stores.
However, in October 1983, Anson Inc. filed for bankruptcy. The same year, C&J Jewelry company bought Anson with all the equipment, which allowed not to stop production. C&J still uses the Anson brand on its products, and the factory still supplies jewelry to its main distributor, Tiffany & Co.
