HAR JEWELRY

 


HAR 

   The HARGO Jewelry Company of New York made jewelry thought to date in the late 50's and into the 60's, but it is otherwise something of a mystery. Some of their best pieces are the wildly creative figurals with fantasy stones like those shown below. Although some Har pieces resemble the jewelry by "Art", Har also used certain stones in common with Florenza.

HAR dragon hinged bangle circa 1955
Gone tone metal with green enameling, irregularly shaped iridescent stones and aurora borealis rhinestones. Snakes and serpents have for years been a popular motif, as these pieces on either side demonstrate!

Circa 1849  The design of this bracelet is amazingly like that of the Har green dragon. 18K ENAMEL ROSE CUT SALAMANDER BANGLE. Belgian mid 19th century, control mark representing a horse’s head (that was in use in Belgium from about 1831).  This style, in gold with enamel and shiny stones, was also fashion in France at that time. It is embellished with green enamel, its eyes are 2 red stones lined with gold. In the middle of its body is set a line of rose cut strass stones. On its head is set an old mine cut strass stone. The end of its curly tail shows 39 rose cut diamonds. Engraved with a date: 'Le 6 juin 1849' and 2 names with a crown: 'Albert à Nancy' (Albert to Nancy).

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 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.
