About the Designer:
Hollycraft 1938-1971
Originally called the Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing Co, Hollycraft was founded in New York in 1938 by Armenian Joseph Chorbajian.
In 1948 to avoid confusion with the existing brand Joseff of Hollywood, the Hollycraft name was introduced.
Hollycraft pieces are always signed, but those from the 1950’s are often marked with their exact date of production as well.
In 1970 Chorbajian sold the company and production ceased shortly afterwards.
Their most popular designs are the pieces in the pastel colour combination from the 1950’s.
