Gold & Gold Filled Beauties...Fine Jewelry

Goldfilled jewelry marked Forstner is that of Forstner Chain Corp of Irvington, NJ. in business from about 1922 to the late 1970's; by then Forstner Jewelry Manufacturing Corp.

Jewelry marked FORTUNE, MERRY-GO-ROUND, NUMIUM, RADIO, SNAP-LOCK, SLIDE RING, TRUSTYLE, UNION, BOLITA, DAPPER, DUBL-LOCK, FC.C., FORSTNER were various lines manufactured by them. You will find some of their jewelry below and I've found their items to be of high quality and holds up well over the years.

PS... I'm a lover of all gold-filled jewelry!

PS088 GF Signed C.T. Topaz Center Pin..$43.00
On the back of the pin there is a hallmark C.T. and it's stamped goldfilled. Normally, you find it stamped 1/20 12kgf or whatever, but this just says goldfilled. I research the marking and apparently it's Cheever, Tweedy and Company who have been in business since 1877. I'm not sure if they are still in business, as the last known advertisement is from 1977. The style of the pin is definitely 1940's. This pin is a two tone gold, the top of the bow is a yellow gold and the bottom is red gold. There is a topaz colored, unfoiled stone handset in the middle of the bow. It measures 1-3/4" across and 1" high. Excellent condition.
