Vendome Vintage Jewellery 1944-1979
Coro, Cohen & Rosenberger began early in the 1900's in Providence, Rhode Island.
As CORO they are familiar to all costume jewellery lovers. CORO made jewellery 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 jewellery.
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 jewellery.
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
