This elasticated belt is so wearable, featuring a lovely big mabe-style resin pearl and mint condition crystals all around it, mounted on a highly ornamental filigree buckle. It would look fantastic with a Grecian style dress this summer. Henry Schreiner started the Schreiner Jewellery Company in 1939 and was director until his death in 1954. His daughter and son in law continued with the business until 1977. In the 1950s he made jewellery for Christian Dior. His jewellery is very distinctive for its use of unusual mounts and subtle colour combinations, using the finest quality rhinestones and crystals. He made exceptionally glamorous belts, bib necklaces, unusually coloured baroque brooches (his signature ‘ruffle’ brooch is a classic!), and large pendant earrings, always glamorous. Bette Davis and Marilyn Monroe promoted his jewellery and wore it in various films. His jewellery is widely collected.
