Harry Iskin, Philadelphia Pa. Succeeded by Iskin Manufacturing Company between 1931 and 1943. Manufacturers of Masonic charms, society emblems, class pins, trophies, medals in white gold and platinum mountings. Often the Hallmark is mistaken for International Harvester, but when you see a Harry Iskin logo, you'll know who it is.
Harry Iskin produced jewelry mostly during the 1940's stylized retro period and his jewelry has become very collectible and harder to find. Harry Iskin jewelry can be seen in the book "Forties and Fifties Popular Jewelry" by Roseann Ettinger. Most of these pieces below are from my private collection.

BS187 Harry Iskin 1940's Deco Style 12ktgf Aquamarine Colored Stone Link Bracelet...$55.00
Harry Iskin 1940's Deco Style 12ktgf Aquamarine Colored Stone Link Bracelet. The flowers are dimensional. The bottom flower petals are open and yellow gold and the petals around the aquamarine colored stones are rose gold. Iskin liked to incorporate two colors of gold into his designs. The stone are prong set. I have no way of knowing if these stones are aquamarines or blue topaz or what...but they are mufti-faceted and show off sparkling brilliance. The round circle links in between is what gives the bracelet that deco look - each circle has three grooves in them. The bracelet measures 7-1/4" x 5/8" and it's in excellent condition.
