Description & Technical information

And outward curving in shape, close backed, mounted in 18ct gold and platinum, signed in script and marked '18K PLAT', the citrines were possibly cut by the reknown German lapidary firm of Munsteiner, who specialised in unusual cuts and were known to have worked with Julius Cohen.

Julius Cohen: In 1929, while just a teen, Julius Cohen began working for his uncles at Oscar Heyman Brothers. He spent thirteen years as an apprentice learning the old world approach and techniques of jewellery manufacture, before joining illustrious jeweller Harry Winston. He expanded the Winston brand across the US, most predominantly in Texas. Julius Cohen struck out on his own, opening a New York salon in 1956. His business catered to an exclusive clientele, by employing a marketing approach of serving clients at their homes. This exclusivity combined with excellence of craftsmanship and design made Julius Cohen jewellery highly sought after. The designer passed away in 1995. His business continues today under the leadership of his son-in-law, Leslie Steinweiss.
