A. Micallef and Company, Providence, RI was founded in 1919; though one book indicates they've use the AMCO marking since 1935. The company manufactured gold, gold filled and silver jewelry including rings, cameo brooches, pendants, bracelets and earrings. AMCO jewelry has stunning designs comparable to Van Dell and Krementz and is of high quality, which is why I've dedicated yet another category to this jewelry. I believe they went out of business in the 70's. |
