The history of the brand “Original by Robert” dates back to 1942. Founded by Robert Levy, David Jaffee, and Irving Landsman as Fashion craft Jewelry Company NYC, in 1951, it was renamed to Robert Originals, Inc. The American costume jewelry market has not been affected much by the World War II. The demand was big enough, the equipment and materials were quite enough. After the Great Depression, the ladies of all ages got a taste and wanted to look elegant and expensive. Therefore, a lot of magnificent jewellery pieces were created in the 1940s. They were close to high expensive jewelry in quality and design, but more accessible. Also Hollywood screen divas added to the demand – they wore not only diamonds, but a luxury costume jewelry. Jewellery company Original by Robert began to do the same. It copied the style of the great Miriam Haskell. All the decorations were made by hand, which means – they are unique and expensive. In addition to jewelry made of beads, great popularity enjoyed the line of decorations in the style of Art Nouveau, made of colored glass. These ornaments are very rare to find on the antique market.
