*Alice Caviness started her jewelry business in the 1940s. Caviness Jewelry was sold only in high-end boutique and department stores and fine jewelry shops in United States, and they were very selective as to who carried their jewelry. Alice and Jules found manufacturers of superb sterling and gold-on-sterling jewelry, cloisonne enamels and filigrees. Caviness jewelry is distinctive and unusual, which explains why it remains so popular today. Since it was a special line of jewelry with many fewer pieces made than companies like Coro and Trifari, it is difficult to find today, and very collectible.
