Hot Sale Coro Jewelry: A Collector's Guide, Identification & Values


Collector Books is pleased to present this first book of its kind, dedicated to one of the giants in the costume jewelry industry. Coro was in business for 79 years, from 1901 to 1980, was once one of the largest manufacturing plants in the world, and was at one time the maker of half of all the jewelry sold in the world. This book is the first devoted to this pace-setting manufacturer. Well-known jewelry expert Marcia 'Sparkles' Brown, author of Unsigned Beauties of Costume Jewelry and two volumes of Signed Costume Jewelry, displays over 600 color photographs with identification and values in Coro Jewelry. Advers spanning the years 1943 to 1961 included, as well as illustrations of the Canadian, English, and American plants and salesrooms. There chapters devoted to Coro, Corocraft, Vendome, Francois, Mylu, and the company's international connections, including Mexico. Biographies and photographs of important company officers featured. An additional highlight is a section on Coro's head designer and his limited edition nine brooches released in 2000. The history in the book spans Coro's legal battles, rags to riches stories of company officers, and Coro's influence in the growth of its Providence, Rhode Island, plant location and the entire jewelry industry. You won't want to miss this book. 2005 values.
