Vintage Coro Rhinestone Jewelry

Coro jewelry began production in 1901/1902 in New York. There were approximately 9 designers over the years. Jewelry markings are numerous and distinct depending on the year and designer of a particular piece. After almost 80 years of production, the largest costume jewelry manufacturer closed its doors in 1979.There are 8 pages of different Coro markings at Researching Costume Jewelry. My clip earrings purchased in Chicago are marked "Coro" in script writing. According to Researching Costume Jewelry my earrings are possibly a Coro Original dating back to 1947! The Coro script signature is on the clip back below.

OMG Cindy ~ those earrings are to die for. Lucky you!!


Oh Cindy, the bling is just gorgeous. I just bought some Coro earrings on ebay, can't wait to get them. Thanks for the history, it's nice to know a bit about our bling eh. Love the pic of the Aurora Borealis, it's quite an amazing phenomenom (did I spell that right, hee hee).
Hugs, Coll :-}
