It is illegal to import ivory into the United States, however any ivory inside this country may be legally bought or sold. We do not support the poaching of ivory, and we are very concerned about the survival of the elephant and would never do anything that we feel would endanger the species. It is a practical matter that people must sell ivory to settle estates, divorces, and financial difficulties.

The Hollycraft Jewelry name
The Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing Company started using the Hollycraft name in 1948, perhaps because of customer confusion between Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing’s jewelry and jewelry produced by Joseph of Hollywood. Hanging tags with Hollycraft on one side and “Created by Hollywood Jewelry Mfg. New York” on the flip side originated during that same year.
Hollycraft costume jewelry of the 1950s
The heyday for many Hollycraft collectors is jewelry produced during the 1950s.

In fact, because of the dating process, and the addition the © sign to Hollycraft costume jewelry after 1955, many collectors choose to collect Hollycraft vintage jewelry by the year.
