Albert Weiss began his career as a jewelry designer for Coro and Marvella during the 1930s, he eventually struck out on his own, creating Weiss in 1942. Weiss created high-end costume jewelry; they were initially recognized for their fine figural, but also became known for pioneering various style and design trends. Weiss was one of the first companies to use aurora borealis rhinestone Swarovski crystals (developed in conjunction with Dior in the 1950s), as well as pioneering the use of smoky rhinestones, enamel, and black japanned settings. Weiss jewelry is somewhat difficult to find, as it was only in operation between 1942 and 1971.
