A lovely set of signed Coro in a silver-tone setting with sparkling blue aurora borealis (AB) rhinestones and crystal faceted beads hanging from the bottom of each piece. Mint condition for its age and one of the prettiest Coro sets I have seen. Each piece is signed with a copyright mark indicating the late 1950s or 1960s. This has so much sparkle!!

The name Coro is actually a combination of the last names of the two founders, Cohn and Rosenberger. Founded in the 1900s, the Coro jewelry company became a powerhouse in reasonably priced costume jewelry and brought colored stones and glitter to middle-class women all over America. Produced in their factory in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1946 Coro employed 2100 people with gross sales of $16M! Even though the Coro brand changed hands in the 1970s and stopped in the 1990s, it's impact changed the landscape of American costume jewelry. Coro had several lines including Coro, CoroCraft and Vendome.
