Les Bernard (see also Vogue), 1936 - 1996:
...
Les Bernard was a pioneer in jewelry designs featuring rhinestones with marcasites. Whereas the backs of rhinestones are pointed, those of marcasites are flat. Consequently working with them required intensive model-making, with different settings for each marcasite stone as opposed to the settings necessary for rhinestones, To mix the two obviously involved a labor-intensive task, making these pieces far more involved to produce that they might, at first glance, appear. **** This layout work was "done by Bernard Shapiro's master partner, Lester Joy - hence the name 'Les Bernard'.
...
Actually, Shapiro left the company in 1961 and his son, Bernard, founded Les Bernard, Inc. in 1963.

Jewelry Company Information
www.pastimecollectibles.com, 6 Oct 2001 [cached]
Les Bernard (see also Vogue), 1936 - present: "Vogue was founded by Harold Shapiro and two other partners in 1936.The Shapiro family ended their association with Vogue in 1962; however, the Vogue name continued until the mid-1970's.Following the family tradition, Bernard Shapiro, Harold's son, founded the Les Bernard operation in 1963.
Les Bernard was a pioneer in jewelry designs featuring rhinestones with marcasites.Whereas the backs of rhinestones are pointed, those of marcasites are flat.Consequently working with them required intensive model-making, with different settings for each marcasite stone as opposed to the settings necessary for rhinestones, To mix the two obviously involved a labor-intensive task, making these pieces far more involved to produce that they might, at first glance, appear."**** This layout work was "done by Bernard Shapiro's master partner, Lester Joy - hence the name 'Les Bernard'."****
Lisner, early 1900's - late 1970's: "D.Lisner and Company was founded in New York City in the early 1900's....Much of Lisner's jewelry is similar to average Coro jewelry and the two companies competed in the average to lower priced costume jewelry market.Some Lisner jewelry is of much higher quality, employing superior aurora borealis and other rhinestones in "atomic" and other modern designs.These command higher prices in the collectible market and... are popular in Europe....Some of the Lisner jewelry employs colorful plastic inserts, sometimes accented with rhinestones, showing Art Deco influence which is under priced in the market at this time."(1)
...
Actually, Shapiro left the company in 1961 and his son, Bernard, founded Les Bernard, Inc. in 1963.Vogue jewelry is beautiful, demonstrating original and innovative designs, and is relatively scarce in the collectible market, particularly the earlier 1930's - 1940's pieces."(1)
Warner, 1950's - early 1970's: "The background on Warner jewelry is scarce and incomplete.Based on the designs and the materials used, the company was probably established in the 1950's by Joseph Warner, and continued operations into at least the early 1970's.Warner jewelry exhibits quality workmanship, superior materials and stones, often mounted on japanned (black) metal settings.... Other manufacturers ... also used japanned metal backings and many... pieces do not demonstrate the workmanship or brilliant stones which distinguish the Warner pieces.... Warner jewelry is not very common and since it is also of better quality, it commands solid and above average prices in the collectible market."
