Sharon Schwartz Auction of Jewelry
The Golden Years of Fashion
Ripley Auctions presents author and collector Sharon Schwartz Auction of jewelry featured in her celebrated 2017 book “Eisenberg Originals: The Golden Years of Fashion, Jewelry, and Fragrance, 1920s-1950s”.
The Golden Years of Fashion, Jewelry, and Fragrance, 1920s-1950s Eisenberg was one of the first American design houses, and the jewelry that bears its mark is among the finest costume pieces ever created. From its early clothing line to the brilliant rhinestone pieces of the 1940s and 50s, the company’s work has delighted women all over the world, with one vintage ad describing the jewelry as “clusters of icy brilliance, shimmering like frozen fire!” Yet there is surprisingly little written about the company, and almost nothing about the other products it marketed. In more than 400 photographs, this book chronicles Eisenberg’s beginnings in clothing fashion and follows the trajectory of its revered jewelry line, as well as documenting its often overlooked fragrances and cosmetics. With stories of the people and companies that were integral to this label’s success, this book shows that, in its golden years, the company’s creations deserved the place they held in only the finest stores.
