Eisenberg

Eisenberg started in 1914 as a wholesaler of ladies’ clothing, but is known today solely as a manufacturer of high quality rhinestone jewelry. According to Caroline Rennolds Milbank in ‘New York Fashion,’ Irma Kirby was their designer, with occasional label credit. Eisenberg often included costume jewelry on their dresses. As many of these pieces were stolen off the racks, Eisenberg realized there was a market, and launched its famous jewelry line in the 1930s.

By the 1940s, the line was carried in most American cities. Eisenberg continued to use the narrow 1940s line and typical 1940s draping once the New Look arrived. Eisenburg stopped making clothing in 1958. The jewelry continues to be made today. Various marks include Eisenberg Original and Eisenberg Ice.
