Cataloging History: Retro Rings

Also new to our blog this year is our Cataloging History series which can be found in our Education section.  I have been collecting old Jewelry books for sometime, and this is my opprotunity to share some of my collection with you.  These catalogs help Jewelry Historians and Collectors identify heirlooms, which is why they are very expensive and hard to find.  You can also buy Reprinted Catalogs for reference.


This image comes from a wholesale catalog entitled “Jewelry Creations”.  There is no printed date, but it is from sometime between 1940 – 1955.
