Albert Weiss started his career as a jewelry designer in the 1930's for the Coro Jewelry Company. After honing his skills there as a jewelry designer he ventured off creating Albert Weiss Jewelry Company in 1942 just as the Art Deco movement was coming to an end. You will see a lot of Weiss jewelry in the Art Deco period design as well as mid-century as continued into the 1950s.
