About Judith Jack Jewelry:

Reference: http://www.stuff4uand4u.com/a-story-to-wear-the-history-of-judith-jack-jewelry/

Judith and her husband Jack Rosenberg created the company Judith Jack in 1969. They realized there was very little marcasite estate jewelry available.  They had been selling antique pieces, and they could not keep up with the demand for this beautiful victorian-inspired jewelry from their buyers. Exquisite style and quality made Judith Jack the leading marcasite fashion jewelry brand. Judith is known as the queen of marcasite in the U.S.

Judith Jack jewelry is generally made of Sterling silver with Marcasites.  It is crafted with marcasite pieces, faux pearls, and sunray crystals hand set in sterling silver and hand polished.  Some designs are replicas of antique styles with sterling silver base metal. Marcasite, when cut with a flat bottom and many facets, shines like a small diamond.  Her jewelry lines include all types of jewelry pieces. Styles are Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and retro.  Some of the jewelry made is limited in quantity and prices are quite high.

As the premier marcasite brand, Judith Jack provides unique, fine quality pieces for aficionados and collectors.  Today, the brand continues to honor its legacy while also offering modern selections.  Judith Jack’s signature pieces feature marcasites and elements of contemporary and vintage styling as well as infusions of semi-precious color, to offer truly unique designs. 

Her “Reflection” line of costume jewelry was sold on QVC, the Television shopping network. Other jewelry is sold at fine department stores to include Nordstrom, Marshall Fields, Von Maur, Lord & Taylor, and Bloomingdale’s. Nationwide, women’s speciality stores and jewelry stores in the U.S. and internationally carry Judith Jack jewelry.
