Napier was considered to be the oldest fashion jewelry house in the U.S. having been founded in 1875. Napier’s collectibles include the unique early designed and manufactured simple, yet elegant line of costume jewelry avoiding the most expensive materials like aurora borealis rhinestones. It created jewelry with high style and superior craftsmanship updating the styling, quality and value for the modern American woman, ranging from career jewelry to casual wear and special occasion. Napier jewelry was at its height of popularity in the early 1900s. They began stamping their brand name on their jewelry in 1922 and continued to do so until the close, of what is now their vintage collection, in October 1999.
