Lea Stein's husband invented the process used for creating her now-famous jewelry, using layers of laminated celluloid. The sheets of cellulose acetate are often layered with pieces of lace, mother of pearl, or other materials to create the wonderful patterns that can be seen in the finished pieces.

Lea Stein began making jewelry in the 1960s and continued through to the 1980s, when production was stopped. However, manufacture began again in the 1990s and continues to this day. Some designs were only in production for a short time, some have only been produced in recent years. Some of the older designs are still in production now and others may have been brought back into production but in a different size. There are many, many variables that can it make it very difficult to date a specific piece.

Excellent vintage condition. No notable flaws, just a little wear due to age. Buy with confidence! Clean and ready for wear or gifting. Gift wrap is available as an option.
