Mazer & Jomaz 

Joseph and Louis Mazer embarked into the jewelry world with their company in 1927.  Sometime after World War II, they parted company with Joseph Mazer forming his own company and using the Jomaz mark.   Thus, pieces marked Mazer Bros.  are those from prior to 1946, while later pieces bear the marks of  either Mazer or Jomaz.   Mazer pieces have always been known for excellence in both  workmanship and design.

With the look of platinum and diamonds, this charming bow brooch is a dazzler.   The setting is rhodium plated and this piece is in exceptional condition.  Although unsigned, it is identical to the signed Mazer piece, item SM020.
