About 1928

The words timeless & vintage immediately spring to mind when you hear the name 1928 Jewelry. For over 40 years, the 1928 Jewelry Company has drawn on a wealth of designs discovered in many unique, unexpected places. From the vaults of rich European capitals to the antique laden attics of old American estates, we’ve created modern replicas of the most beautiful, exquisite vintage jewelry ever made. The 1928 Jewelry Company was founded by Melvyn Bernie in 1968. Currently, the company has four lines under its signature brand name.

I have an albatross necklace too!! I ordered it when I was about 14 years old (1978). It was a promo thing from Q-tips. You saved proof of purchases and sent in for the necklace. Don’t know anything further. Lori

Kathryn says:

I sent photos of The Albatross Necklace and box and was wondering if you had found any information on it yet? Hard to imagine that this piece was produced, boxed with a “story” card, and there is nothing in the 1928 files about it. Waiting patiently for your reply. Kathryn

melissa says:

Hi Kathryn!
Please email customerservice@1928.com with some images of the piece and we will see what we can do! If we can’t tell you when it was made, we can definitely provide some suggestions for earrings that might be a good match!

Kathryn says:

Hi – Found a piece of 1928 jewelry at an Estate Sale-The Albatross Necklace-in it’s original box. The box is in not great shape-missing labels, tags, etc. Can you tell me when it was produced? And what Collection (if any) it is a part of? Would like to try to find earrings for it. Kathryn

Annie says:

Hi Holly! If it doesn’t clean with a dry cloth, mix one part gentle soap with three parts lukewarm water in a small bowl. Use a cotton swab or toothbrush, dip and clean :) [see more]

Holly Thacker says:

What are your recommendations for the best way to clean 1928 jewelry?

Elizabeth says:

I was hoping someone could tell me, My mother bought a necklace for my grandmother back int the 70′s and was recently given back to her. I was wondering who I could talk to about getting the right information on it. I can post a picture if I need to. Please help me help her.

I love 1928 Jewelry because of it’s finest look & designs that add an extra beauty to woman’s personality.
