Signed ,KING 18k size 5.5 excerpt from our Blog : His interest in jewelry continued and upon his return from duty he opened for business with his hand-crafted silver jewelry on 4th street in Greenwich village. He soon expanded both reach and materials. His fine gold work was showcased in as many as 18 locations including flagship stores on Lincoln Road in South Beach, Miami, Cuba, Paris, and Fortnum and Mason in London. His earthy wooden and cork interiored shop at 611 Madison Avenue opened in 1962. King’s freeform style became almost iconic of the age. His jewelry, always unique, railed against the cookie-cutter design of the large jewelery houses. They became works of art as individual as his patrons. His clientele included Vidal Sassoon and Lena Horne, the latter of whom helped him finance his midtown store at 59th street.
