Ledo / Polcini Jewelry (1911-1980s). 

The history of Polcini jewelry began in 1911 in Mamaroneck, not far from New York. Its founder, Ralph Polcini moved from Italy to America at the beginning of the 20th century and began to produce fine jewelry.

In 1949 he renamed his company to ‘Leading Jewelry Manufacturing Company’ and changed the mark to ‘Ledo’. Jewelry made between 1949 and 1962 had the year of manufacture alongside the brand name.

Polcini / Ledo jewelry was manufactured by skilled craftsmen using high-quality materials including silver, gold plating and fine rhinestones.

Ralph Polcini died in 1954 and his son Damon took over the company. Proud of his family business Damon returned the name to Polcini in the early 1960s.

The company ceased to exist in the early 1980s.
