Louis Mark, who had an eye for detail, was their head designer during the 1940s.
They manufactured costume jewelry which was known for the high quality of design and materials used. The pieces were all hand-set using a variety of colorful rhinestones. In 1946, the company split into two companies. One company stamped their two lines of jewelry using the names "Jeray" and "American Beauty Pearls. The other was formed by Louis Mark, along with Alvin and Robert Rice, stamping their jewelry with the name, "Barclay" (not to be confused with McClelland Barclay). Mark continued to work as head designer for this new company, Barclay Jewelry Inc.
