Joseph GOURDJI
born 1927- died 2009
Born in Baghdad, Iraq, Joseph Gourdji came to American at the age of 12 in 1939.  His creative life included everything from ice skating professionally with Sonja Henie to being an antiques dealer to making his own line of unique jewelry. This New York man made his wonderful jewelry from the 1990s until his death. Many of his pieces are enamel on metal, often pierced and with rhinestone accents. A very few are paper with hand drawn and painted pictures. They are hand-made, one of a kind pieces and unlike anyone else's designs.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
