Ciner Strawberry Blossom Pin


Item# 80034287

      Back to previous pageBACK
Founded by Emanuel Ciner in 1892 in New York City, Ciner Fashion Jewellery began as a maker of fine jewellery. In the 1930s the company began creating fashionable, high-end costume jewellery, gaining renown for its extraordinary craftsmanship, and vintage Ciner pieces remain highly sought after today by collectors. Emanuel Ciner's granddaughter, Pat Ciner Hill, and her daughter, Jean, now head the family firm that has been designing important costume jewellery for nearly 125 years.

Each piece begins with a hand-coloured sketch, which is then sculpted by a model maker, in the tradition of platinum jewellery. Ciner uses only the finest materials, and rich jewel-toned enamels are applied entirely by hand.

Luxurious examples of Ciner jewellery (1966-76) are represented in The Costume Institute collection at The Met. This pin translates the natural beauty of blooming strawberries into elegant, sparkling costume jewellery.
