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 1970s. Traditionally, the main inspiration for SFJ jewelry – Christmas, Halloween, and St. Valentine’s Day holidays. Besides, the common feature of all jewelry pieces – gold tone jewelry alloy, or brass, and enamel of bright colors.
According to some sources, abbreviation SFJ means Stephen’s Fine Jewelry. However, other sources mention SFJ as the trademark for R Steinmetz & Sons, the American company registered in Mumbai. Also, some sources mention the third person, whose original initials were S.F. and after the jeweler got married, she added the letter “J” to her label.
And I would be very grateful for any additional information about SFJ jewelry brand history.
