Holycrafts often use a variety of rhinestones, especially in pastel colors, resulting in gorgeous pieces.

 

History

Joseph Chorbajian was born in Turkey in 1917.

At the age of 17, he immigrated to the United States and in 1936, he founded The Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing company.

Later on, the company merged with his cousin Archie's and friend Jack Hazard's company.

In 1948, Hollycraft opened at 902 Broadway NY, which continued to make jewelry until the late 1960s.

However, it was completely sold to another company in 1972.

The jewelry made by Hollycraft is known for its gorgeous pastel rhinestones in Victorian style, gold-plated metal with a gold antique finish, distinctive detail, and design.

Christmas brooches made by Hollycraft are especially popular among fans and collectors.
