ADORNING AMERICA: The History and Legacy of the Schreiner Jewelry Company offers a glittering display of jewels by one of North America’s foremost designers of high-end costume jewelry. Created in New York City by founder Henry Schreiner in 1932, the eponymous company flourished during the early 1940s, due in part to successful collaborations with the top ready-to-wear clothing designers. During the 1950s, under the leadership of Henry’s daughter and son-in-law, Theresa and Ambros Albert, the company entered its heyday. Celebrated for using unusual color combinations, inventive hand-made settings, and custom-made stones, the Schreiner Jewelry Company leaves a sparkly legacy that is enjoyed by jewelry collectors and admirers across North America and much of the globe.
