talkingfashion: Hollycraft was founded in 1938 as the Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing Company, but adopted the "Hollycraft" trademark in 1948 and continued in business until the mid-1970s. It is best known for its costume jewelry and Christmas tree pins. Intricate and Victorian in style, its pieces have antiqued gold-tone settings with rhinestones, beads, and enameling adding a characteristic dazzle of rainbow colors. Hollycraft jewelry is highly collectible because, unusually, it is always signed.
Joseph Chorbajian founded the Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing Company NYC in 1938. The jewelry exhibited beautiful designs with excellent workmanship that is well executed and rich appearing with the use of glimmering rhinestones that were sometimes accented with enamel work. Rhinestones used on Hollycraft jewelry are usually of pastel colors with brilliant glow emanating from the depth of the stones, and extremely difficult to replace. Mark: "HOLLYCRAFT CORP. and dated" starting in the 1950s, and "HOLLYCRAFT with a copyright symbol". The company was in business and produced jewelry until the late 1960s; its jewelry was sold until 1971.
