Garné costume jewelry is not widely collected.
Garné jewelry was first produced in 1945, and jewelry was made by Garné until the late 1960s. The company was based in New York City and the jewelry made by Garné is considered average-quality, though some pieces definitely imitate the finer Weiss or Eisenberg lines of vintage costume jewelry.
Garné was a small company and the jewelry was apparently made in limited supplies and not widely distributed. Garné made necklaces, pins, bracelets, earrings and also watch fobs and chatelaines.
Some sets were made, and collectors have found that only one piece may be signed in a set. Original display cards might say “Garné JEWELRY HAND CRAFTED.”
