About HAR-
The "HAR" mark was owned by Hargo Creations in New York. It was founded by Joseph Heibronner & Edith Levitt in 1955. Heibronner was born in 1893 in Munich, Germany, became a US citizen in 1948 and married Edith Levitt in 1952. Joseph died in August of 1968. The "HAR" mark was probably used beginning in 1955 to 1957. Some pieces of HAR jewelry are among the most sought after by collectors and often bring fantastic prices for dealers. Included in this are the dragon, cobra and Chinaman pieces, with full parures bringing the highest prices. (taken from illusionjewels dot com).
