History of Eisenberg according to Dr. Lori:
Founded in 1914, Eisenberg & Sons started a business selling women's clothing and later turned to costume jewelry design, manufacturing, marketing, and sales in the 1930s. Why did the Eisenberg firm change course? The costume jewelry that was used on store displays to market their clothing lines kept getting stolen.
As a result of this change of course, Eisenberg & Sons produced some of the 20th Century's most sought after pieces of costume jewelry like other costume jewelry makers such as Miriam Haskell, Matisse, and others. the firm that Jonas Eisenberg and his sons ran was known for attention to detail, new designs, and quality materials in costume jewelry.
Many Eisenberg pieces were designed by Ruth Kamke of Fallon and Kappel of New York once the two firms had a mutually exclusive agreement from the 1940s to the 1970s. Kamke designed Eisenberg pieces for nearly decades; specifically she designed all of the Eisenberg Original pieces made after 1939 and much of the Eisenberg Ice line of jewelry thru 1972. Many Eisenberg brooches and pins were designed in the form of figures like mermaids, dancers, animals or insects. Some pieces featured geometric Art Deco or organic Art Moderne forms in attractive color combinations featuring pinks and purples, complimentary color pairs, and light and dark colored faceted or cabochon stones from the same color family.
Stones and Metals
Eisenberg jewelry was known for its use of Swarovski crystals set in sterling silver and pot metal using innovative designs. Other materials used were jade, dyed onyx, calcite, enamel, rhinestones, faux pearls, glass beads, etc. Most costume jewelry pieces made by Eisenberg were individually set and many rhinestone pins were comprised of large or very large stones.
