ABOUT THIS BRACELET

Measuring 6 1/2 inches long, the sides of this sleek and ever-chic jewel are hand engraved in quintessential Jazz Age style. Sophisticated and stunning worn alone or stacked with a mix of other bracelets. The maker's mark indicates by the intrguing firm of Jung & Klitz.*

 

*There is very little known history of the story of Charles B. Jung and Robert Klitz. Sometime in the late half of the 19th century, the pair formed a partnership that created finer platinum and jadeite pieces, along with Christopher Staiger. The business grew and their production increased. They opened on Maiden Lane in New York City, the main jewelry district of the time. The partnership, however, began to struggle around 1899 and, by 1900, Chas B. Jung and Robert H. Klitz dissolved the partnership with Christopher Staiger. Court documents show they paid him $20,000 and settled in 1906. At the time they reported having $98,000 in stock on hand--a hefty sum. The business expanded under the two and the headquarters was located now at 1 Maiden Lane in 1915. Other court records show that Jung and Klitz helped stop master swindler Henry Wiess in 1915. Wiess had heard about Jung and Klitz likely because of their fame for attracting big clientele like James Buchanan Brady or "Diamond Jim" as many knew him, the vastly wealthy business man known for buying high-end jewelry. By the mid-1920's they had grown drastically and again attracted the attention of burglars and, on April 23, 1921, while Jung's family was away on vacation, burglars went to Jungs' apartment taking approximately $9,000. The business pushed forward and eventually closed its doors with the death of both of its founders as we know it. https://www.velvetboxsociety.com/jungandklitz.html#/

About Art Deco Jewelry

Sleek and modern, Art Deco design brought jewelry into the machine age. Yet these stylish pieces still found room for the fine forms and lines of previous eras within their elegant architecture. In particular, we see many peaceful co-habitations of Edwardian and Art Deco styles together.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
