The history of Empress jewelry began in Hollywood, California, registered in 1967 and owned by Empress Pearls Inc. The president of the company was Arthur Joseph Parent, Sr. (8 April, 1935 – 28 December, 2011).
However, according to other records, Empress jewelry began its history during the WWII, in 1942. In addition to cultured and faux pearls, the designers used genuine opal, tiger’s eye and other natural stones. Creating classic design stick pins, earrings, rings, cufflinks and necklaces, Empress jewelers used silver or 10, 12 and 14 carats gold.
Traditionally, all jewelry was sold in exquisite branded boxes. Notably, the earliest maker’s marks included the stylized word “Empress” on an oval cartouche and no copyright mark.
Based in California, Empress Pearls Inc ceased to exist in the early 1990s.
