Global lifestyle luxury brand, renowned for its iconic wrap dress and signature prints, DVF jewelry history began about fifty years ago. Its founder, Belgian fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg, named one of the TIME 100 Most Influential People (2015), comes from a wealthy Jewish family.
In 1972 she founded her own company, and began producing ready-to-wear clothing. Soon, along with the production of cosmetics and accessories, she launched costume jewelry. The style of jewelry is varied, from Art Deco to modernist and classic plant and animal designs. Traditionally, jewelry materials include gold and silver tone alloys, lucite, enamel, art glass and rhinestones. The stylish marking consists of the “DvF” logo for Diane von Furstenberg, in an oval cartouche along with the copyright symbol.
Noteworthy, the company was actively producing costume jewelry from the 1970s to the 1990s. During this time, DVF collaborated with such jewelry brands as Haskell Jewels, and H. Stern. According to sources, DVF resumed the production of branded jewelry in 2014.
