There is little information about the founder of the jewelry company Gay Boyer Inc., or the costume jewelry designer who signed his decorations “Gay Boyer”. And this is strange, considering that we are talking about a famous New York designer who had been active for more than three decades before he retired.
According to my research, the company located at 19 W 36th St, Midtown West, New York, NY started producing exquisite costume jewelry in 1976. Traditionally, these are brooches, earrings, necklaces and bracelets made of gold-tone alloy or plated with 24 karat gold. Also, the craftsmen of this company used enamel, rhinestones, crystals, art glass, faux pearls and also semi-precious stones. Jewelry styles range from Art Deco and Etruscan to classic and animalistic style.
Noteworthy, the president of the company Gay Boyer retired in 2009, and the new owner and chief designer became talented and creative jeweler Lisa Harris. She renamed the company to Boyer New York and continued the tradition by producing fine costume jewelry using semi-precious stones. These products are successfully sold in the best boutiques and department stores.
But still, most desirable for lovers and collectors of vintage jewelry are pieces produced from 1970 to 2000 with the “Gay” marking.
