The history of the American jewelry company Volupte Inc., registered in Elizabeth, New Jersey, began 90 years ago, in 1932. Initially, the company produced vanity cases, elegant powder compacts, purses, and cigarette cases, and this brought them success. In addition, they started to produce accessories and costume jewelry. The business expanded, and already in 1945, the company registered its subsidiary Volupte Inc. at 347 Fifth Avenue New York 10016 NY.
Traditionally, Volupte craftsmen used gold and silver tone metals alloys, transparent rock crystal, multi-colored rhinestones, and sometimes enamel. The marking includes the word “Volupté” in block capital letters, and without the copyright symbol. Notably, the copyright mark on jewelry appeared after 1946.
By the way, French word “Volupté” means “enjoyment”, or “pleasure”. Undoubtedly, it is a great pleasure and delight to have this company’s jewelry.
Some of their figural brooches and bracelets, influenced by oriental and Art Deco style, adorn the pages of vintage jewelry reference books. In particular, Judith Miller’s jewelry guide. Exquisite design, meticulous attention to detail, use of high quality materials and handicraft have made these items highly collectible. Quality jewelry that has stood the test of time, and the price of which will increase every year.
Noteworthy, the Attleboro, MA-based jewelry company Shields, Inc acquired Volupte in late 1950s. Thus, incorporated on 26 August 1932, Volupte Inc. ceased to exist in 1957.
