SFJ vintage costume jewelry
There is very little information about American jewelry company which produced costume jewelry marked SFJ. However, there are lots of beautiful vintage decorations marked SFJ, mostly brooches created in 1960-80s. Traditionally, the main inspiration for SFJ jewelry – Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving Day, and St. Valentine’s Day holidays. Besides, the common feature of all jewelry pieces – gold tone metal alloy, or brass, and enamel of bright colors. Also, each piece has a distinctive marking SFJ with a copyright sign on oval base, and often a number. SFJ holiday costume jewelry is very collectible.
According to US Patent Office, SFJ trademark belongs to American company R. Steinmetz & Sons India Pvt. Ltd. In addition to SFJ, they registered “Steora” jewelry trademark. Since 2014, the status of both trademarks – cancelled. Yet, featured here SFJ jewelry can’t be trademark owned by R. Steinmetz & Sons. Although their trademark SFJ on production of gold and diamond jewelry has similar design, it was registered in 2007 and has nothing to do with vintage jewelry.
Meanwhile, some sources mention a female designer, whose original initials were S.F. and after she got married, she added the letter “J” to her label.
Since everything secret sooner or later becomes clear, more accurate information on this brand will be updated.
