Eisenberg Vintage Pin Brooch Swarovski Crystals
Researching over 100 years of collectible jewelry, bought by my great grand mother to my mother is proving to be an amazing hobby. Learning the history of Eisenberg Jewelry, Coro, Celebrity, Hong Kong, and so many other brands had lite a fire inside. I adore the pieces, these little nuggets of history…memories made in the form of pins, brooches, earrings make me think “where was my grandmother when she wore this. What was the social climate like?”
Many of the brands and piece we are putting up for sale reflects a time in U.S. history when manufacturing jewelry was more of a craft than a manufacturing business. Cleaning a few pieces last night I was shocked to see how close to diamonds many of the pieces looked. Although the stones are Swarovski Crystals, they look so real.

Known for its use of Swarovski crystals and colored stones, as well as superior craftsmanship and attention to detail, Eisenberg & Sons was one of the most highly regarded costume jewelry manufacturers in the 1930s and ’40s. The company was famous for its replicas of 18th-century fine jewelry, which appeared authentic right down to the pewter-colored metal. Eisenberg also produced stunning figurals, often set in Sterling silver
Eisenberg & Sons actually began as a women’s clothing company in 1914 when Jonas Eisenberg founded the firm. Jewelry was used to decorate the clothing to make it more appealing to customers. Unfortunately, the jewelry kept getting stolen because it was so attractive.
Years ago a friend, who was the number one jewelry salesman in the united states explained, “All crystals are Swarovski Crystals. Swarovski is a brand.” Our conversation about Swarovski Crystals came up because we were designing and manufacturing our own line of costume jewelry. The line went no where (long story) BUT, learning what Idid about Swarovski Crystals got me thinking and comparing any Swarovski Crystals against a regular crystal cut in from the 1920’s tie now.
