The history of Jezlaine, or Jez jewelry firm began in 1975 as a family business in a garage of Albuquerque, New Mexico. According to its founder Robin McVey, she launched her business on the personal savings. “No bank would lend me money … Now, everyone is banging down my door. I could afford to.”
The main direction was the manufacture of silver jewelry by the method of artistic forging. Traditionally, Jezlaine produced high quality brooches, charms, pendants, earrings and bracelets of filigree designs.
The collections include “The Cats”, “Christmas”, or “St. Valentine’s”, made of 925 sterling silver. All filigree adornments of this brand have marks on them, labeled 925 Jez, or Jezlaine Sterling.
In 1999, Sunstone Imports, located in Morton Grove, Illinois, acquired the Jezlaine company.
