The history of Sydney Berman jewelry began in 1928, when 25-year-old Sydney founded his own jewelry company “Sydney Berman & Co Inc”. Located at 102 Canal St. New York, NY the company manufactured fine jewelry in the period of 1928-1950s. Traditionally, the goldsmiths of the company made 12 K, 14 K gold filled rings, brooches and bracelets in Victorian and Art Deco style. Also, they used natural gems, such as diamonds, turquoise, garnet, opal, aventurine and crystals. The marking on the back of each piece included stylized initials “SB” (the letter “B” turned back), and purity of gold – 12 K or 14 K. Now super rare, SB vintage handcrafted jewelry is highly collectible. Noteworthy, Dorothy Rainwater’s reference book “American Jewelry Manufacturers” (1988) mentioned SB jewelry.
American jewelry designer Sydney Berman (April 1903 – January 1, 1980, Palm Beach, Florida) was the son of Binen and Esther Berman.
