One of the 47th Street jewelers in New York, N.Y., Danfrere fine jewelry began its history in August 1968. According to the Official Gazette of the United States Patent Office, Danfrere Co. filed for DF trademark in July 1968. The company produced fine jewelry with the use of 14 K gold and precious stones – diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies. Traditionally, the designs of pins, clip earrings and brooches included figural animal and flower motif.
Noteworthy, the labelling of DF jewelry differs. Thus, the earliest pieces (since 1968) include initials DF in a shield, and since 1970s the marking changed to “Danfrere Copyright” and 14KT Copyright. The marking changes could be due to a business merger, or ownership changes. The company ceased to exist before 1980.
Similar New York jewelry companies, such as Danfrere Creations and Dankner & Sons could relate to Danfrere Co.
