The history of the Jeray costume jewelry brand began in 1946, founded by New England Glass Works Inc. which operated in Providence, Rhode Island from 1911-1958.

Led by Louis Eugene Hirsch (November 17, 1913 – January 1, 2007), Jeray produced high-quality costume jewelry using metal alloys, gold and silver. The jewelry is characterized by filigree floral and foliage patterns embellished with vibrant rhinestones.
Noteworthy, iconic American designer Norman Bel Geddes (1893–1958) and cartoonist Betty Betz (1920–2010) made jewelry for Jeray. In this case, they added their names to the original logo, a stylized word Jeray written in a cursive font.

According to 1946-1954 copyright cards issued by the U.S. Copyright Office, New England Glass Works Inc., doing business as Jeray, filed patents on several pieces of jewelry in 1950.
Although there was also Jeray jewelry trademark (1943-1950), owned by Rice-Weiner & Co, however, their stamp is different in style as it includes block letters.
