Joseff of Hollywood made much of the jewelry that was used in the Hollywood films of the 1930s and 1940s. The company was famous for developing a unique, coppery gold-colored matt metallic finish – known as Russian gold – which minimized the problem of over-reflectivity when filming gold jewelry under powerful studio lights.
