A curated collection of vintage enamel jewelry produced by Shashi Inc, New York from The Museum of Jewelry in San Francisco, Ca. Our gift shop stocks a selection of new-in-box vintage pieces including designs by Shashi, Laurel Burch and Thousand Flowers Jewelry.
In 1964 Shashi established Shashi Inc. an import operation based in New York City. He would take a few thousand dollars to exotic locations and buy merchandise, which he then sold wholesale at trade shows in New York. He built strategic relationships in Singapore, Indonesia and China and soon began manufacturing his own line of clothing and jewelry.
Shashi Inc manufactured jewelry in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s with showrooms in New York City and San Francisco. His use of hand-made cloisonné enamel, french hooks, and art nouveau inspired bohemian style helped to define jewelry for a generation.
Our Shashi Inc pieces represent Shashi's earliest designs. Preserved in vintage unopened packaging and on original earring backs, Shashi pieces represent the earliest line in the Museum's collection.
