Eye Candy Circa 1958: Vintage Leru Costume Jewelry

No matter how many jewelry makers we've found in our decades-long hunt for vintage costume jewelry, there are always more names to know.  Leru was an American name in costume jewelry, low-priced and perpetually pretty.  We love to find floral 'gems' like these, especially in sets like those featured in this 1958 Vogue ad for Leru designs.
