Snake ring
by: Anonymous

Yes, the snake ring was made by Baumstein and Feder.
Trademarked inside the shank "Baumf." The post WWII generation of creative NYC manufacturing jewelers is gone forever.

Baumf 10K Lions Ring
by: Anonymous

Inherited a 10K (which I know seems kind of suspicious) gold lions ring with Diamond eyes and ruby. The hallmark is still there. Resembles a wide upside down W with a G in the middle. It's been in the family for about 4 generations as far as I know. Is this worth anything?

Baumstein and Feder
by: Anonymous

Harvey Feder and Irv Baumstein had extraordinary taste in the unique jewelry that they made. Many jewelers copied one another, but I never saw them. The closing of their company exemplifies the collapse of much fine jewelry manufacturing in NYC. A.Jaffe and the Goldman brothers remain and prosper but the dozens of others that I dealt with are gone. They were indeed, the greatest generation.

BAUMF Cocktail Ring
by: Anonymous

I also inherited a cocktail ring white 14K with a raised center stone and surroundings stones 7 total. They may be diamonds but I am not sure. Did this company ever use anything other than diamonds in their rings (cubic zirconia possible)? Not interested in selling this ring because it is a family heirloom.

Lion ring
by: Anonymous

Krementz and company, originally in Newark, NJ, had a fine jewelry division (ONE OF SEVERAL DIVISIONS) which made particularly fine, traditional lion rings which predate Baumf's. But, these were not the endlessly copied ring made in three head sizes by Baumstein and Feder. Baumf. had their lion head ring first made in the 1950s (if I am not mistaken with the date). The original models were commisioned to a designer/model maker in Italy and then cast and finished in N.Y.C. under their manufacturing auspices.

Great Cats & Baumf
by: Anonymous

Thanks for your contribution - always good to to hear from visitors in the business. I wasn't aware Baumf made the original Lion's head ring, and King Edward - the Lion King, was fond of the great cats and among the gifts Edward lavished on Wallis were the signature ‘Great Cats’ commissioned from master jewelers.

With Best Wishes,
Yvonne

Baumf trademark
by: Anonymous

Harvey Feder and Irv Baumstein made very fine jewelry from the 1940s and through the late 1980s in New York City. They made the original lion's head ring which was then copied in inferior renditions by many manufacturers. They also made a snake, bear's head and several other animal rings which had design copyrights. Additionally, they had a beautiful line of bridal jewelry, men's diamond rings, brooches and cocktail rings including a beehive ring made with a choice of multiple gemstones. Trademark was Baumf. My father and I dealt with them for decades.
