Very often, jewelry labeled “Giorgio” is attributed to the iconic Italian designer Armani without reason. Even the style of these jewelry designs is different from Armani’s. Moreover, I consider it impossible for Armani to mark his jewelry with one word “Giorgio”, without the surname, which is an inseparable part of the world famous brand.
Undoubtedly, costume jewelry hallmarked “Giorgio” belongs to an American jewelry company whose history spans very short period of late 1970s and early 1980s. There is practically no information about the company, but luckily, there are products of excellent quality and high craftsmanship. Traditionally inspired by nature, the design of these decorations stands out – beautiful birds and animals in gold tone metal with rich enameling and crystals.
According to the available records, the U.S. trademark Giorgio, last filed by Susan M. Shook on the 1st of March of 1980, soon changed its status to “Cancelled”.
Noteworthy, along with U.S. “Giorgio” and Italian Giorgio Armani hallmarks, there was another Los Angeles U.S. jewelry company – Giorgio Beverly Hills, that produced beautiful costume jewelry around the same time period.
