If you can remember when women first used beads, they could wear earrings, bracelets, or anklets. (Although in some cases, earrings made of pearls, amethysts, or emeralds.) And many women also wore necklaces made of animal hair, or a string of beads, with or without jewels. A woman’s accessory was tied to her earlobe and her jewelry could be worn in any manner she chose. When did women become jewelry makers? In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, many women began weaving baskets. In the early 1900s and in the late 1910s, these women began designing and developing jewelry pieces, such as bracelets, necklaces, necklaces, earrings and earrings or earrings made from pearls, amethysts, or emeralds. In 1926, when the National Institute of Jewelry and Commerce was founded in Chicago, there was one exhibit dedicated solely to the jewelry business.
The business of jewelry was very lucrative, and in a time when women had only rudimentary sewing skills, there were no shortage of skilled women to sew bracelets and necklaces. Because of their high demands and low skill level, it was highly advantageous when the woman was married. There are several reasons why a woman might want a husband to help her with her jewelry business: 1. The husband may make the jewelry; 2. A married woman must work long hours in the business in order to provide for her family; and 3. Women are often drawn to jewelry work because a wife is typically less expensive.
In the 1873 book, “The Jewelry Industry and the Wealth of America,” by J. E. Brown, there are about 30 separate chapters on jewelry manufacturing and selling. The first woman owner of one of America’s largest manufacturing firms was Sarah Lee. She started the firm with her brother in 1899. Her husband, Jacob, was also on the board.
In the 1920s, women started to work in jewelry making and reselling. In the 1940s, a number of women opened jewelry stores. By the 1940s, women in the apparel industry started to build jewelry stores. In 1954, the first women’s jewelry store was opened in New York City.
Today, women sell about $60 billion worth of jewelry a year in the United States alone. About 50 percent are made in the U.S. and 30 percent are bought from local jewelry stores in the United States, Canada, Mexico and
