Staret Jewelry
 


STARET is a jewelry company about whom little is known. The jewelry was made for a brief period in the 1940's, and they were probably located in Chicago. There have always been rumors that they were affiliated with Eisenberg, but this has been denied by Karl Eisenberg.  Staret pieces are generally large, and the settings are often enameled 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. Staret collectors love the big hand brooches, especially the Staret torch, the company's most recognized piece.

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.
