The history of Gigi signed costume jewelry spans rather short period from 1990 till 2000. Located in Burbank, California, luxury goods and jewelry company Gigi Accessories Inc. had 10 trademarks registered from 1994 to 1998. In particular, Angelica (1994), Hug-a-Bear (1995), Santa’s Pet, Santa’s Secret, Simple Fabulous, Millennium, Simply Charming (all in 1996), Legends og Camelot, and Secrets From the Heart (1998). Since 2000, the status of all these trademarks -cancelled.

Traditionally, the company’s craftsmen used gold and silver tone metal alloys, enamel and rhinestones. They created earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, brooches, and more often lapel pins. According to these pieces, the favorite design was angel. The marking on the back side of each piece included “Gigi, Guisti, and USA on oval base. In addition, some items were sold in beautiful velvet boxes, or on paper cards with the inscription “Gigi Accessories Inc.”, “All rights reserved”, “Made in USA”, and the year of manufacture.

Noteworthy, some sources mistakenly name Louis Giusti as Gigi Accessories Inc’s chief designer. However, renowned jewelry designer of 1960s, Louis Giusti created brutalist statement pieces, and signed them with his initials “LG”.
