Was founded in 1939 in New York, NY, by Henry Schreiner. The small, family run company manufactured extraordinary costume jewelry throughout the 1940s, 50s, 60s, and 70s. Admired by collectors and fashion enthusiasts alike, many believe that there is no other costume jewelry designer who consistently made such fine, diverse, and original pieces. In addition to creating their own collections, they collaborated with many of the top couturiers including Christian Dior, Norman Norell, and Pauline Trigère. At the height of their popularity, pieces by the Schreiner Jewelry Co. Graced the covers of Vogue, Glamour, and Harpers Bazaar and were touted by celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, and Audrey Hepburn. How do I know if a piece of jewelry I own was made by Schreiner? Never signed pieces going to the couturiers, leaving many Schreiner pieces to be found unsigned today. When pieces are signed they have a cartouche marked Schreiner New York or Schreiner. The following list of signature characteristics can help you identify unmarked Schreiner jewels. One of the most famous characteristics of Schreiner jewelry is their use of inverted or upside down set stones. Intentionally set their stones with the point up to optimize sparkle and to add depth and dimension to their pieces. When placed on a garment, the unfoiled stones allowed the fabric to show through creating the illusion that the jewelry was an extension of the clothing. Henry Schreiner (1927 - 1973) got his start designing c ostume jewelry for Trigère, Norell, and C hristian Dior in the late 1940's, but hes best known for the necklaces, pins and earrings produced by his own firm, founded in 1951. Schreiners signature was to invert the position of his kite-shaped rhinestones within the open-prong settings of his pieces.
He was also famous for his r uffle brooches , which featured kite-shaped crystals overlapping and radiating from a central, signature gem. Prohibitive (too costly) to duplicate today. Henry Schreiner emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to the United States in 1923.
In 1927, Schreiner found employment with the Better Buckle Company, working with metals designing and fashioning belt buckles, buttons and dress fasteners. In 1939, Schreiner opens his own company Schreiner Jewelry Company. Movie stars such as Bette Davis and Marilyn Monroe promoted Schreiners jewelry. Although the Schreiner look is based on the abstract use of unique paste stones in unconventional settings, some figural pins were also made. Schreiners designs included flower pins of daises, geraniums, sunflowers, cornflowers, and white marguerites, dragonflies, carrots, pineapples, peas in a pot, turtles, and acorns, in different colors.
Schreiners jewelry used gun-metal plating; bronze plating and gold plating for backing along with very expensive made to order special shaped stones which he obtained from the skilled Czechoslovakian craftsmen in his country, Germany. These stones were very expensive, exclusive to Schreiner, and are no longer manufactured.The attention that Schreiners pieces commanded in the media made extensive advertising unnecessary. Schreiner died in 1954; the company continued operating and making designs from Schreiners original molds under the leadership of his daughter and her husband.
In the late 1960s, Schreiner continued to use quality crystal rhinestones in his designs. In 1973, the company ceased to operate. Schreiners jewelry is considered one of the finest costume jewelry ever made. Today Schreiner jewelry is highly sought after by collectors.
