Signed Bobley vintage costume jewelry (1956-1975)

The history of the Bobley jewelry brand began in New York, NY in 1956 and lasted for two decades. However, long before the founding of the eponymous jewelry company, Joseph A. Bobley had extensive experience in jewelry business. So, back in 1918, 23-year-old Clifford A. Furst and his 18-year-old partner Joseph A. Bobley founded Castlecliff. A talented designer, inventor and businessman, Joseph worked for the company for over thirty years, building Castlecliff into a renowned and successful brand.

Although Bobley jewelry brand did not become as famous as Castlecliff, the design and quality of Bobley jewelry was of the same high standard. This makes Bobley pieces just as collectible and desirable for vintage jewelry lovers. Joseph led the company until his retirement in 1970.
Incorporated in 1956, Joseph Bobley Jewelry Inc ceased to exist in 1975.
