Originally founded in 1928 by Eugene Joseff a.k.a "Jeweler to the Stars", Joseff of Hollywood was the most prestigious name in on-screen jewelry during the Golden Era of Hollywood. Through unparalleled attention to detail and quality Joseff of Hollywood quickly became the top choice for Hollywood studios. The jewelry has been featured in such epics as Gone with the Wind, Cleopatra, and Gentlemen prefer Blondes. Our timeless pieces have been worn by legends such as Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, and Lucille Ball.
Joseff of Hollywood produced over 90% of all of the jewelry that was used in films from the 1930s - 1950s, including such films as, A Star is Born (1936); The Wizard of Oz (1939); Gone With The Wind (1939); Casablanca (1942); Anchors Aweigh (1945);Easter Parade (1949); Singing in the Rain (1952); To Catch a Thief (1955); Ben Hur (1959); Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961); Cleopatra (1963); and My Fair Lady (1964).
Joseff was an innovator not only because he created a new genre of jewelry design, but also because he created a metal finish for his pieces called “Russian Gold.” The finish had a coppery gold matte look and solved the problem of over-reflectivity that metal can have when being filmed under bright studio lights. Moreover, Joseff’s pieces were deceptively light in weight, minimizing fatigue when the jewellery was worn for hours on end during filming.
