Coro, Inc., began operations in 1901. The U.S. operations ended in 1979, but Coro continued to produce jewelry in Canada until approximately 1998. In 1944, Coro began the production jewelry marked "Vendome", the name of a city in France. Vendome is associated with high-end Coro designs and most was produced after 1953.
This lovely parure consists of a cuff bracelet, brooch and earrings composed of a simple. yet elegant combination of twisted gold-tone metal wire and beads along with round white glass beads.
The tear-drop shaped brooch consists of three loops of interspersed gold-tone and white beads along with four dividing loops of gold-tone wire. It measures 3" in length, 2" in width and has a safety clasp mechanism.
The cuff bracelet consists of five loops of the gold-tone and white beads along with six loops of gold-tone wire. It has an inside measurement of 2" across with some additional flexing for size.
The round loop earrings consists of two loops of the gold-tone and white beads along with three loops of gold-tone wire. They measure 1 1/4" across with a screw-back closure.
The brooch and bracelet are both stamped within a cartouche 'Vendome" with a copyright symbol; the earrings are not marked. The set is in excellent condition with little or no metal wear. Great look.
