The Duchess of Windsor and Barbra Streisand were just two of the many fans of Cadoro jewelry. This large flower pin or pendant is a good example of Cadoro's bold innovative designs and top-quality materials.
This rose is made of finely textured gold-tone with so much gilding that there's no wear anywhere. The petals spread out 3 1/4 inches each way.
The back has both a secure rollover clasp and a hook that can be put in the midst of a bead necklace or over a metal or cord chain. The CADORO hallmark plaque is on the back. This is circa 1960s...in excellent vintage condition.
Cadoro was a Manhattan-based jewelry company founded in 1954 by actor Steven Brody and Daniel Stoenescu (aka Staneskieu). They specialized in unique costume jewelry sold in stores such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. The company closed in 1987 following Brody's retirement as president. Examples of Cadoro jewelry are held by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. You should have this piece to hold (and wear) for yourself.
