STARET is a company about whom little is known. Their jewelry was made in the early 1940's and they may have been located in Chicago. There have always been rumors that they were affiliated with Eisenberg, but this seems doubtful, even though the styles and sizes are somewhat similar. Their pieces are generally large and the settings are often pot metal. 

STARET jewelry is big, showy and fun to wear. The best pieces combine enameling and rhinestones like many of the ones shown below.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
