Czech jewelry is typically unsigned, but you will occasionally find a piece marked Czech or Czechoslovakia

In 1918 the Czechs and Slovaks became united. They were freed from the rule of Austria and Hungary and the land in which they lived is now called Czechoslovakia. Prior to World War I, the jewelry from this area was called Bohemian and often not marked. After WW I, the jewelry was marked with Czecho-slovakia, Czechoslovakia or Made in Czechoslovakia.

You will find Czech items throughout the website, however only those that are MARKED as such are found here. Try searching the site on Czech to find other items on this website.

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

Many of our vintage items will soon be available via auction. We are planning two auctions for October, and possibly more later. Please inquire for auction details if interested.

We thank all of our current and past customers. We are taking a hiatus due to other family obligations. If you are interested in any jewelry items, please feel free to inquire prior to our close date.
