In business from around the turn of the 20th century until the late 1970's, Coro was one of the most, if not the most, prolific costume jewelry companies of all time.The name Coro came from a contraction of the first two letters of the last names of the original owners, Cohn and Rosenberger.Circa 1960, this beauty is signed in back (c)CORO and is in Excellent condition.This pair of earrings will bedazzle him, contrasting with your blue or green eyes, and making brown eyes look snappier.Two strands of winter white glass beads, frosted glass and subtly coated Aurora Borealis crystals adorn this piece by Vendome.And look at that clasp--1 1/4" long x 7/8" wide, rising in a slightly domed shape and piled high with more AB crystals and white glass beads now prong set.This confection is sprinkled with a constellation of starry clear rhinestones winking furiously.
This delightful '50s find is in Very good condition.
Operating under many different names, the above mentioned Coro, Corocraft, Francois and Vendome are the most well-known, with Vendome, Corocraft and Coro Duettes being the most sought after.
Ranging from low to high price points, the best that this company had to offer rivals almost any other high end manufacturer.
