|The trademark Vogue was first used by Park Importing Co., founded in NYC about 1915. The firm specialized in simulated pearls and beaded jewelry. Vogue jewelry that is collectible today was manufactured in the late 1930's to the early 1970's by Harold Shapiro and his two partners, Jack Gilbert and George Grant. Actually, Shapiro left the company in 1961 and his son Bernard founded Les Bernard, Inc. in 1963. Vogue jewelry is beautiful and is relatively scarce in the colletible market, particularly the earlier 30's and 40's pieces.|
