Hello everyone. I found this bracelet at a sale. I saw that is was signed Pennino. When I researched online about Pennino Jewelry I saw that they were brothers from Italy that started making jewelry from the 1920's until the 1960's. I am not a collector I just thought it was pretty and decided to research the signature online. If anyone can tell me more or if Pennino Jewelry has any value I would appreciate it. Thank you.

    Pennino Brothers Jewelry was a United States jeweller founded by Oreste, Frank and Jack Pennino in 1926 and based in New York City. It designed and manufactured costume jewelry using rhinestones set in gold plate, sterling, vermeil or rhodium-plated base metal. Many of these pieces were made by Italian immigrants, such as Adrian Scannavino and Benedetto Panetta. The designs were traditional and classic.

    You can read the full history and see photos of their jewelry on this link:

    Although I have the same last name, I'm not directly related to the Pennino Brothers. There are lots os Penninos at USA and Italy. Here in Brazil, my family there are two Pennino Familys as I could find out so far.
