This gorgeous 1940s vintage sparkler of a bracelet is signed by Coro and is sure to set your heart aflutter! Its 9 plaques each feature 4 large and 2 smaller clear crystal rhinestones nestled in next to the “eaves” of four “ribbed/textured” goldtone leaves (or possibly branches – or possibly stylized Japanese characters…the very design will send you into flights of fancy and imagination!) – with the exception of the plaque at the end with the square that the Coro-signed fold-over clasp latches onto – this plaque is a bit smaller and designed with 2 large and 2 smaller stones. There is lovely continuity of design, plaque to plaque – an indication of the high level of craftsmanship the Coro brand is known for. A true midcentury jewel you’ll treasure in your heart forever.
• Signed "Coro" on the still perfectly-working fold-over clasp
• Goldtone safety chain works perfectly and gives you added piece of mind

Please read all Shop Policy info before purchasing items.

Please keep in mind that vintage clothing is, by definition, old. It has most likely been worn before, and it may have signs of wear. I do my best to note any flaws if they exist. Also remember that sizing changes – what used to be considered (and marked) a size 12 may now be more in line with what we think of as a size 6. For this reason, measurements are given for all garments. If you have any questions, please ask before you buy.

All items are offered and sold in "AS IS" condition. All items are measured carefully to ensure accuracy of fit, and all flaws are described so the buyer can make an informed purchase. Please ask any questions you may have on size, condition or any other item aspect prior to placing your order.

More on the Designer: CORO/COHN AND ROSENBERGER (c. 1900-1979) - Coro jewelry, Cohn & Rosenberger, was founded in New York by Emanuel Cohn & Carl Rosenberger in 1901/1902 & incorporated in 1913. It was the largest of all costume jewelry manufactures, and marked the jewelry in many different names. The list is too long to publish here but the top of their line was Coro Craft with Coro in script and with the Pegasus emblem in block or out side of block. Later the top of the line would become Vendome, and they could compete with some of the most famous manufactures of costume jewelry. A factory was established in Providence, RI in 1911. With offices or plants in New York & Providence; at times they had a presence in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Toronto, England and Mexico. Great Britain mechanical patents have been found in the name of Corocraft from 1961 until 1969, which documents actual production in England (courtesy Mary Walden-Till). Cohn died in 1910, but the name remained Cohn & Rosenberger. The corporate name "Coro" was adopted in 1943. Rosenberger died in 1957, & his son Gerald, who succeeded him, died in 1967. In 1969 the family sold 51% of the Coro stock to Richton, Intl. Corp., who bought the remaining stock in 1970. Richton also owned the Oscar de la Renta brand. By 1979 all the Coro companies, except the Canadian company, were bankrupt. It was sold to a South American company in 1992 & also went bankrupt. Gene Verri was the head designer and personally responsible for many, many of Coro's famous designs. Adolph Katz signed many of the patents only as a representative of the company. Information confirmed by Ron Verri , Gene's son -- 9/8/05. According to Jim Katz, the first instance of Coro necklace using a J hook is July 15, 1948. Designers for Coro according to Brunialti:
- Gene Verrecchia [Verri] --1933 - 1963 (he and his son Ron own Gem-Craft)
- Charles E. Pauzat--1939-1940's
- Oscar Frank Placco --1934-1945?
- Robert Geissman—1938
- Sidney Pearl—1941
- Carol McDonald--1940
- Lester Gaba—1941
- Marion Weeber --1940-1941
- Victor di Mezza--1950

Coro manufactured most of their own jewelry. However, when needed, they would have other companies make some of their jewelry. Hedison manufactured some jewelry for Coro. Catamore manufactured all Coro's "precious metal" jewelry, until about 1970 when Coro started making their own. (primary source: illusionjewels.com)
