Thomas Luzier was a chemist in Kansas City, Missouri in the early 1900s. His focus was to create facial creams and skin care products for women. In 1923, he founded Luzier Personalized Cosmetics. The company prospered, developing many new skin care items. But they did not produce jewelry. According to a company representative, Luzier had a program of individual ladies selling the products, like Avon and Sarah Coventry. They had contests for and gave awards to these ladies. Jewelry, made and hallmarked LUZIER, was given as prizes to the winners. That is why this jewelry is rare and difficult to find. The company was sold in 1977 but still operates as Luzier and is still located in Missouri.
