J.E Caldwell, Lambert Bros Jewelers and Belais Manufacturers
Websters dictionary states that the word, synonymous, is a like in meaning or identifiable. When we think of Belais jewelers we think of white gold, and with Lambert Bros. we think of the pear shape diamond and Liz Taylor. Belais Manfacturing Company was started by David Belais in the late 1800's and lasted until the early 1940's. They were one of the earliest manufacturers of white gold. Belais applied for a patent in the early 1900's for white gold. His gold was a mixture of the alloys white gold, zinc, and nickle. The brilliancy of this was that when the war came to fruition, platinum wasn't being used, so this white gold became the standard. Belais applied for the patent in 1918, called white gold, and it was granted in 1920. Belais used beautiful mine cut diamonds and European cut diamonds in solitaire engagement rings flanked by stunning filigree and floral engravings. They also loved gemstones, and semi precious gemstones including aquamarines with classic milgrain engravings. Another wonderful jeweler was the Lambert Brothers of NYC. They came into existence in the late 1800's. Lambert Brothers jewelers was started in the late 1800's with August Lambert, and his brother, making beautiful engagement rings and jewelry. The tradition continued into the 1970's with the grandson, Henry, at the helm. Henry then sold Lambert Bros. to the Zale corporation. In 1979 Henry purchased the famed 69.42 carat pear shape diamond that was given to Liz Taylor from Richard Burton for 3 million dollars. Here are four beautiful antique engagement rings!
