The skill of Armenian jewelers has always been famous all over the world and allowed them to survive in a foreign land. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Kheditisian family emigrated from Armenia to the United States. Their elder son Harry Hadison changed his surname to Hadison and founded Hedison Manufacturing Co. in Providence, Rhode Island in 1909. Thus, the history of the American jewelry brand Hedy began. When his sons Harry, Jr. and H. David grew up, the company became their family business. After the death of the founder and chief designer of the company Harry D. Hedison in 1954, his eldest son David became the president of the company. In addition to costume jewelry and gold-plated items, the company produced a number of items made of precious metals. Like many jewelry companies, Hedison Manufacturing produced jewelry for other brands. The company ceased to exist in late 1970s (according to sources, in 1977).

Initially, the marking on the back included letter “H” in the heart, and after 1954 it was “Hedy” with the copyright sign. Traditionally exquisite filigree design, especially earlier pieces, the brand’s products also feature simple designs. In particular, bright enamel flower or animal pins and themed collections produced for the holidays. Handcrafted vintage costume jewelry of this brand is highly collectible now.
