Signed Jolle vintage costume jewelry
American jewelry brand Jolle appeared in New York in 1942 thanks to its founders Jack H. Appel and Lester L. Hess. Noteworthy, the company’s main designers Lester Hess and freelancer George E. Fearn had previously worked for the other jewelry companies. In particular, Uri Mandle and Karu.
Traditionally, when creating costume jewelry, craftsmen used sterling silver with the addition of gold, crystals, rhinestones, glass and sometimes enamel. All products were labeled Jolle Sterling, or simply Jolle. Although Jolle decorations were produced for a very short period of time, just over a decade, they became collectible, and were mentioned in reputable jewelry reference books. Noteworthy, Russian Cossack Dancers brooches, Hess-Appel’s 1943 patented design, book piece. Sterling silver, enamel. The Jolie brand ceased to exist in 1954.

Noteworthy, in 1943 (the year of foundation of Jolle), Lester Hess patented his perhaps the most famous design, which in the future will become highly collectible – a pair brooch “Russian Cossack Dancers”. Instead of company’s name, the brooches have numbers on the back.
