MARVELLA - Designer Information

Marvella was started in the early 1910's and was extremely popular in the 1950's. The company was bought out by Trifari in the early 1980's.

Marvella is known for their simulated pearl jewelry, but they also created pieces using faceted and smooth beads. One of their most beautiful lines incorporated faceted aurora borealis beads such as this set.

Marvella produced jewelry under many versions of the Marvella name as well as under different names. For a comprehensive guide to costume jewelry marks, visit Illusion Jewels.
