Timeline: 1930s-1998

Founded in the 1930s, Accessocraft's real claim to fame was their production of tens of thousands of war relief pins in World War II. All profits were donated to charity during the war. Later they became known for its heavy, stylish jewelry and accessories. During the 1960s, its distinctive gothic designs and blended antique gold-tone or bronzed metals with unusual stones were particularly popular. They produced the jewelry designs of Pauline Trigere and Anne Klein.

Around antique shows you'll find collectors and dealers proudly wearing their Accessocraft magnifying glass necklaces in goldtone fillagree style to check more closely the condition of their potential purchases.
Many Accessocraft pieces have Renaissance, Victorian, or Art Nouveau touches.
