The D. Lisner Company was officially founded in New York City, in 1904, which was largely wholesale and was comprised of goods imported from Europe, including jewelry. Around the 1930’s, importing jewelry and rhinestones from Europe proved difficult and they wanted a nautical look for the upcoming season, so they would contract for the new line with a factory in Providence that specialized in nautical jewelry. Once considered “junk jewelry,” vintage Lisner pieces have only recently become collectible. In the 1990s, collectors realized that the clever shapes and bright colors of the company’s cheaply made plastic leaves and baubles possessed a unique beauty. The value of Lisner jewelry has surged in the last couple of decades and is coveted worldwide. Lisner jewelry has not been manufactured since the mid-1980s. Today, collectors appreciate Lisner fashion jewelry for its modern, art-inspired beauty. Victor Ganz may be well-known for his art collection, but he should also be remembered for the artistic, classic jewelry he created like this gorgeous, red crystal on gold link choker necklace. It is stunning for dress or casual wear, sparkling and shining, it really dazzles! It has a rubies and gold, sophisticated look and would make an excellent gift for vintage lovers and collectors of exquisite Lisner jewelry!
This piece features gold plated links, each embellished with two ruby red crystals and is signed LISNER on the side of the hook. The necklace measures 16.25″L x 1″W and is in excellent vintage condition. It can be adjusted to ANY length and has a beautiful charm which dangles down the neck.
