About Mazer Bros. Jewelry

Mazer Brothers jewelry, made in New York City from 1927-1952, was characterized by the company’s slogan — “the precious look in fashion jewelry”. From their early days until they severed their business ties, brothers Louis and Joseph used only the finest materials and manufacturing techniques: gold- or rhodium-plated metal before and after World War II, sterling silver and vermeil sterling during the war, imported Austrian crystals, and enamel. This fine collection of brooches and earrings features high-quality pieces in classic motifs, including floral and ribbon-and-bow designs. Jewelry by this maker was available only at “better department stores”.

  • Aquamarine brooch in vermeil sterling
    Close-up view of cushion-cut aquamarine
    USD$445.00

    Aquamarine, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling Flower Brooch by Mazer Bros.

    , ,
    This aquamarine brooch by Mazer Bros. is a fine example of the Retro Modern style. Tall and graceful, this substantial, stylized flower features a large, faceted cushion-cut glass stone as its focal point. The gold-washed, sterling silver setting is further embellished with four, faceted oval-cut stones along with pavé-accented gold swirls. This pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Pieces of this size with a gold-plated finish often don’t survive as well as this brooch has. But costume jewelry was well-made in the 1940s by companies of this maker’s stature. Note that any color variations in metal seen in the photos are only camera reflections.

    Diamanté Double Clip Brooch by Mazer Bros.

    , ,
    This double clip brooch by Mazer Brothers features sparkly round and baguette diamanté in a late-Art Deco design. What’s interesting about this piece is that the patent for the brooch mechanism that connects the dress clips was issued to Marcel Boucher in 1939, two years after he started his own company. He filed the patent application when he was working for Mazer Brothers, but the patent wasn’t assigned to them when it was issued. (You can see the utility patent here, below Boucher's name.) I was surprised to find the “MAZER” mark on this piece from the technical perspective but certainly not from an aesthetic point of view. Because this jewel was created with the Boucher mechanism, I think it was made while he still worked for the firm. Wear this lovely piece as a brooch or as separate dress clips.
