Background

Charles H. Stuart as Sarah Coventry, Inc. Newark NJ, USA ~ 1949- 1984 and again in the early 2000s to Present -Charles H. Stuart founded the Emmons Jewelers, Inc prior to founding Sarah Coventry, Inc. He named the former after his wife. He named the latter after his granddaughter. The jewelry was not sold at department stores, but rather in the home at parties. This was a wonderfully ingenious idea as it was just after WWII and woman were looking for not only income, but to keep up with the trend towards accessories. The jewelry for men and women was designed by outside companies in a variety of styles. Some of the jewelry had Victorian influences, some were exceptionally well made and most were not originally low in price. The company became the largest distributor of costume jewelry and remained so until a change of ownership and the waning popularity of the home party method of sales

Between the early 1980s and 2002, the jewelry was not being produced. Sarah jewelry began to show up on the internet. In 2003, the jewelry began to be sold at home parties once again. Sarah Coventry jewelry has withstood the test of time. Some of the pieces are very popular and have a price tag to prove it. Sarah Coventry jewelry was marked in many ways and some were not signed at all.
