Vasari vintage costume jewelry
Founded by Jon M. Bratton in 1982 at 61 EAST 8th St. Suite 181 New York, NY 10003, Vasari trademark ceased to exist in 1994. Thus, the costume jewelry company was in operation for just over a decade. Handcrafted in limited quantities, this brand’s jewelry is rare.
Obviously, the brand name is inspired by the great 16th century Italian painter Giorgio Vasari (1511 – 1574). Like the paintings of the great Vasari, embodied in paints on canvas, the masters of this brand embodied their skill in brooches, rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Noteworthy, very often, along with the traditional materials – alloys of metals of gold and silver tones, they used 18 carat gold. Also, along with rhinestones, crystals and art glass, there are semi-precious stones such as tourmaline, peridot and others. Markings on rounded rectangular base include “Vasari” in capital block letters with copyright sign.
