Panetta Gold & Rhinestone Heart Necklace circa 1980



A lovely vintage heart pendant necklace by quality jewelry company Panetta circa 1980. The necklace is comprised of two gold plate flat curb link strands that meet in the center at a pave' rhinestone set heart. The heart is 1 inch wide and high in size and has a rectangular signature plaque inscribed Panetta in block letters on the back. The necklace strands are .25 of an inch wide and have a fold over clasp in the back. Closed it is a wearable length of 15 inches. Excellent condition. Benedetto Panetta founded the jewelry company bearing his surname in New York in 1945. He got his start as a fine jeweler in Italy working with karat gold and platinum. After immigrating to the United States, he worked for Trifari in the 1930s as a model maker and was employed later by Pennino Brothers before opening his own costume jewelry business. Panetta’s goal was to make jewelry with a “real” look, so many pieces closely imitate fine jewelry. Their lines sold for good sums when they were new, and production runs were kept small making this a desirable name among jewelry collectors today although not extremely plentiful (especially when it comes to early pieces) in the secondary marketplace. Styles changed over the decades to keep up with the latest fashion trends, but the quality of this brand’s wares remained high. After Panetta’s death in 1960, his sons Amadeo and Armand continued to operate the family business. In the late 1980s the company was sold to one of Panetta’s best customers in Japan. Production continued with the new entity through 1995.
