St Labre vintage costume jewelry
The history of St. Labre jewelry began in 1960, when two New Yorkers Leo Dohn Senior and Emmett Hoffmann founded their jewelry company in Ashland, on a Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Montana. Jewellery Manufactory St. Labre existed until 1976, so jewelry of this company is not very common. Despite the fact that the brand existed for a rather short period, the products of this company are easily recognizable. Thus, a distinctive feature of this brand was the obligatory presence of artificial turquoise in all costume jewelry. In addition, the craftsmen used rhinestones, crystals, stone chips, gilding and enamel of different colors. Also, the masters of this company used a bijouterie alloy in appearance resembling tin. Traditionally, all products have marking “St. Labre” on the back side.
