Charles Turi, start his jewelry designer firm in the early 1947 when he just returned from the US Army, but originally, he was a Hungarian born immigrant to the United States. He created jewelry pieces that were classic with art deco patterns and easy to be marketed, with the high fashions that women loved in that period of the post war.
