    Lackritz: Lackritz Jewelers was founded in Chicago in the early part of the 1900's by Paul N. Lackritz, where it became the most distinguished jewelry shop in the city, at one time with a branch on Fifth Avenue, New York, and for even longer a store on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. They were known for offering high fashion jewelry of the era, as well as offering a more distinct collection of men's jewelry than other jewelers of the time. The business closed in the 1950s.
