Vintage ART/ModeArt Jewelry
During a period from the 1940s to the 1960s the Art Company (or ModeArt) created remarkable costume jewelry in many designs with Art Deco, Victorian, and Renaissance influences. Becoming more and more collectible.

Please note, we will be closing our website effective March 31, 2015.
