Abraham Lisker founded the Jonette Jewelry Company, East Providence, RI in 1935 producing J.J. costume jewelry. To name the company, he combined the names of his parents, John and Etta naming it Jonette. The company name was later changed to Lisker & Lisker Inc. when brother Nathan joined the firm. During World War II, the company ceased operations due to metal shortages and government restrictions. The company started production of jewelry again in the 1970s with Gordon Lisker indicating that the jewelry was being produced with some of its production being farmed out to other companies. It has been said that today, the company has a workforce of approximately 80 employees. The J.J. jewelry produced is primarily figural and novelty pins with some containing sterling silver metal base. Abraham Lisker indicated that the company moved in this direction during the early years because of its success in selling ballerina and mother-of-pearl figural pins. Another speciality of J.J. was designing and creating Christmas pins. J.J. Jewelry is of average to better than average quality. Mark: "J.J. with a copyright symbol" and "J.J. STERLING". The company is still in business today.
