DeMario Jewelry (1945-1960)
Robert DeMario, an Italian immigrant, founded his company in 1945 in New York City.
DeMario jewelry was characterised by superior design and excellent craftsmanship which often incorporated clusters of Austrian faceted glass beads, pearls, rhinestones, mother of pearl and rich enamel on gilt filigree. The uniqueness of hand wiring with brass strung treads and beading with pearl details gave the brand a unique character. Complex multi-layered work, a combination of diverse components and materials resulted in jewelry that had a great effect.
DeMario company’s production quantity was limited and as a result, their jewelry is rare and desirable among collectors.
