Original by Robert Jewellery History
In 1942 Robert Levy, David Jaffe and Irving Landman founded the Fashion craft Jewellery Company in New York City and Landsman left in 1951. The company, which had been trading as Robert for some time, officially changed its name to Robert Originals in 1960.
Robert is perhaps best known for its Haskell-inspired pieces, which feature faux pearls, coloured glass and crystal rhinestone in gilded filigree metalwork . It also produced a wide range of cold-enamel pieces and these are rare and collectible today.
Robert designs have natural and floral motifs with the use of faux pearls, coloured glass, crystal beads, and high quality imported rhinestones set on gilded filigree open wire and openwork mountings. The company’s advertisement in the 1940s indicated that the jewellery was hand crafted with fine details that possibly expert jewellers could mistake the stones for genuine precious jewels. Because of its excellent design, workmanship and materials, the jewellery sold at a high price.
The firm supplied jewellery to the motion picture industry. Including jewellery for the 1952 Oscar nominated Elia Kazan "Viva Zapata" featuring Marlon Brando and Jean Peters. Most pieces are signed, though with varying trademarks. “Original by Robert” was used from 1942 to 1979, when Jaffe’s daughter Ellen took over the company, changing the company name to Ellen Designs.
