B.S.K. costume jewelry doesn't get enough respect, in my opinion. Sure, B.S.K. made medium-quality jewelry and aren't in the league of Weiss or Eisenberg. But they still made some lovely pieces that are worth collecting.
On the other hand, the fact that B.S.K. costume jewelry isn't highly sought after means that the prices are quite affordable! And this translates to more pieces of jewelry for your collection.
I found the piece shown in this post this past weekend. Before I turned it over to see if it had a signature, I was thinking maybe a Coro piece. To my delight, it proudly proclaimed B.S.K. for the mark! It's well-made, with amtique white enameled leaves and rhinestones in AB, rose and light yellow. The three large AB stones are set in a rose-type setting. Some of the other stones are also set in tiny floral settings. It's a very pretty piece.
A Little ABout B.S.K.
The name B.S.K. came from the three main owners of the company -- Benny Steinberg, Hy Slovitt and Kaslo (not sure if that is a first or last name). The jewelry was made between 1948 and the early 1980s.
B.S.K.'s claim to fame involves their "My Fair Lady" line of jewelry, which commemorates the movie by the same name. It's the most collectible of the B.S.K. jewelry.
The B.S.K. Marks
There are just two marks used by B.S.K. for their jewelry.
- B.S.K. My Fair Lady
Every piece I've ever seen has a copyright symbol, but that doesn't mean there might not be some without the copyright symbol floating around out there.
