Costume jewelry marked Star may have been distributed, and possibly manufactured, but L. Heller & Son, Inc. The firm is listed in the 1904 and 1915 Jewelers' Circular with over a dozen trademarks and was possibly the wholesaler, not manufacturer, of simulated pearls and imitation stones for jewelry. Two trademarks used in the 1940s and 1950s were La Tausca and Star, the former usually found on a tag on simulation pearl jewelry. Much of Star jewelry employs plastic inserts and floral or deco design similar to those of Lisner and Coro which were popular in the 1950s. The jewelry is usually marked STAR on back of earring clips.
