This is a Beautiful Set of BSK Vintage Costume Jewelry. The pieces are Silver tone and have an etched silver within. They are all in nice condition with no damage. The earrings are 1" across. The brooch is 2 1/2" long and 2" across. A really pretty matching set.
The company was founded in New York in 1948 and was in business until the mid 1980s. The letters BSK stand for the first initials of the three owners: Benny Steinberg, Slovitt and Kaslo. Overall, though, their designs are of average style, although very good quality. The jewelry sold well in the 1950s, when the demand for affordable jewelry boomed after the war time period. The BSK line was reasonably priced and was sold in department stores such as Woolworth’s.
Often mothers and teachers received BSK designs as gifts because of the price point. Many of their designs were of the typical brushed gold-tone finish so popular at the time with Trifari and other designers. One very interesting series that the company did was called My Fair Lady, and this is featured in many vintage jewelry reference books at better than average book values.
They are not easy to find and always command good prices even when the enamel is worn.
