Coro, Cohen & Rosenberger began early in the 1900’s
in Providence, Rhode Island. As CORO they are familiar to all costume
jewelry lovers. CORO made jewelry from about 1920 until the 1970’s, and probably did it under more different names than any other
maker. Vendome (1944-1979) , Corocraft (1935-1980), and
Duette are just three examples. The Coro mark was on the more
modestly priced jewelry. Corocraft, Vendome and Francois were the better
and higher priced lines. Adolph Katz was one of the best known of the
designers, but there were many others responsible for the wonderful style of Coro jewelry.
Vendome, probably best known for glittering
faceted glass bead necklaces and earrings, also featured other wonderful
jewelry such as the cabochon, enamel
and rhinestone pieces pictured below.
