Napier figurals are an excellent way to start collecting Napier jewelry. Whether you choose animals, florals, or people, you are sure to find some incredible items. Many of these pieces have three-dimensional attributes, gorgeous colors and enticing textures. Most of the cast figurals manufactured by Napier were made in the 1960s and 1970s.

The hand-manipulated designs, primarily from the 1950s are often crafted with findings typically found on the fashion lines. Both the hand-manipulated and cast figurals have a unique “Napier Look” to them, with the later have a hand-carved appearance. In actually, most of the cast figurals were hand carved.
