    Adwar Jewelry in NYC is known now for their gold findings. Most people do not realize that back in the 60's they made their own line of 14K gold jewelry which were repros of antique pieces using genuine stones. Their attention to detail was amazing. This is the cover of their catalogue from which I ordered some pieces and I was never disappointed. The second pic on the bottom (pg 15) shows a pic of a very heavy link bracelet and above it I have placed the bracelet they made up for me in '68. It is 1.25" wide and is almost .65" thick. Weight is probably over 100g. They even used the old fashioned closures. One of my favorite companies and some of the nicest people. Their main competition was Serube Bros for fine jewelry repros, but I always preferred Adwar bracelets, brooches, earrings, and necklaces because of their weight, quality and attention to detail..

      Lovely jewelry, thanks for sharing! How was their jewelry marked? Can we see a mark on your bracelet.

      Hi, davyd286. Marks on back are 14k and their stylized A. Regards
    7. davyd286, 4 years ago
      Thank you, I assume it looks like the A in the shield on the catalogue cover. Lovely designs!

      @GilMills - I contacted the company about my necklace. My message was read but no answer received. :-(((
    9. GilMills GilMills, 4 years ago
      Dear efesgirl, What company, what necklace, what info were you after?
    10. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      GilMills > the people you told me about in regard to my necklace: Pure Pearls. I left them a message on Facebook.
    11. GilMills GilMills, 4 years ago
      Dear efesgirl. PurePearls is great and once you register with them you can download everything you need to know about pearls yourself and determine their validity. If this is not enough, simply take the strand to a local pawn shop or someone knowledgeable and ask them what they will give you for them.. Best not to tell them you bought them in a box for $5. Or you can take them to a reputable working local jeweler (chain store clerks do not know) and just tell them you were given them some time ago and want to know if they are worth restringing or refashioning into earrings and a bracelet, etc. Have you tried scratching into the "nacre" of one of the beads to see what happens. Also, the metal clasp material will give you a clue.
