Founded by Olaf Anderson, a Swedish immigrant, in 1938. However, the company only started producing men's jewelry after the war, in 1945. In 1967, Anson started producing women's jewelry as well. Anson jewelry was sold at The Tiffany Company department stores. The company was foreclosed in 1983 and sold its assets to C & J Jewelry, who continued the production of Anson jewelry up until today.
