Note #1: I know this is not technically a vintage jewelry ad but it was too gorgeous to leave out

Note #2: Just in case your wondering what an Epaulette is click here or in layman's terms a shoulder decoration or adornment like in the military or in a high jewelry design such as Dior's above.

 


 

Napier is Haughtier Jewelry Ad, 1970's

Napier is Haughtier Jewelry Ad, 1970′s 

Vintage Napier Jewelry is getting hotter by the second in vintage costume jewelry world. Amazing vintage Napier pieces are getting scarcer and scarcer while the demand is only getting higher, so it’s no wonder why fabulous Napier jewelry from a bygone era to the modern era are commanding top dollar. Couple that with the release of Melinda Lewis’ “The Napier Co.” Book and you have the perfect storm of a Napier feeding frenzy.

Lewis’ Napier book is literally almost 1000 pages of Vintage Napier Jewelry heaven which took over a decade of researching and writing on Lewis’ part.  I came across this great article by Collectors Weekly which really gives us an inside look into the wondrous world of The Napier Co.

1930′s Brass Filigree Bracelets adorned with Glass Cabochons Stacked by Napier

Established in 1875 making it older than Whiting & Davis! From the beginning Napier did not want to be known as a costume jewelry company but rather a fashion jewelry company.

Napier wasn’t known for just one style or genre like Trifari’s rhinestones or Monet’s metalwork. Starting as E.A. Bliss, the company produced ornate belt buckles, hair pieces, matchsafes, and chatelaines. Over 125 years, the firm that became known as The Napier Co. in 1922 made thousands of necklacesbracelets,earrings, and brooches, too: Everything from frilly sterling silver filigree and modernist gold-plated metalwork to jewelry with beads, crystals, Catalin, and charms.

From soup to nuts or from beads to rhinestones, from straight brass chains with an ornamental tassel to va va voom glamour, Napier did it all.

Look at this necklace below, it’s simply marvelous how the chains just seem to flow into glass beads over and over again like a waterfall of gorgeous!

In my personal opinion the golden days of Napier were definitely from the mid 1940′s to the 1960′s. That time period was the golden age of costume jewelry design. What I would give to go back in time and see department stores full of these amazing jeweled pieces! I’d buy them all!
