Researching Costume Jewelry (RCJ) is a collaboration of hundreds of costume jewelry collectors and dealers who have shared – and continue to share – their knowledge, photos, written articles, and jewelry catalogs along with assisting in other ways. Special acknowledgments go to Dotty Stringfield who created RCJ in 1997 with the help of jewelry historian Pat Seal. This information was moved to Costume Jewelry Collectors Int’l (CJCI) in 2019 to honor the legacy of RCJ and preserve this valued resource for jewelry researchers. Thanks to our CJCI Education Fund supporters for making that possible.

 

*DISCLAIMER: As in the past, we make every effort to ensure all information contained in the RCJ pages is accurate. However, errors can occur. Neither the prior owner of RCJ, CJCI or its representatives are responsible for your use of these resources.
