The Coro costume jewelry company started doing business in 1901, producing jewelry under several brand names.Some of their more notable products include the Coro Duettes, Coro Tremblers, Coro Door Knockers and Coro Crown Pins. The Coro company went out of business in 1979 in the US, then the company operated in Canada until about 1998. In 1901, Emanuel Cohn and Carl Rosenberger established the accessories boutique Cohn and Rosenberger in New York City, which was later shortened to Coro. From the onset, the company featured imported costume jewelry pieces, mixed with work from a stable of designers who developed original work and adapted popular styles. Coro was a successful company, in part because Cohen and Rosenberg worked with highly skilled designers to finesse the designs, and an army of workers who actually produced the jewelry. An excellent jewelry designer, Adolph Katz, began working with Coro at about the time the partners built a new production facility in Providence, RI, in 1929. Katz did not actually design the vintage Coro pieces, but he selected the designs of other well-known designers, such as Gene Verecchia and Oscar Placco. Verrecchia was the head designer at Coro for about three decades and he created many of the best-loved Coro pieces, although patents have credited Katz. Jewelry from this period in Coro history (the 1930s and 1940s) is highly sought and collected. Unique pieces from this era include the Coro jelly belly pins, which were figural pins depicting many animals, all with a clear acrylic center stone (resembling a jelly bean) placed in the creatures belly.
Trifari produced jelly bean pins first, Coro later. Coro Duette pins were also very popular and highly collectible today.
Coro trademarked this unique brooch which had a fastener, trademarked by the company, which locked two separate dress pins together. The pins could also be detached and worn separately.Some Coro Duette pins are fairly simple, in geometric designs. Others are much more complex, featuring whimsical flowers or birds.
Sometimes, these pins are signed simply Duette. In 1937, the Coro company began producing jewelry signed Coro Craft and in 1944 the company started its Vendôme line (named after the city in France).
These two lines were considered higher-end Coro lines. A designer named Helen Marion created beautiful Vendôme pieces featuring crystals, which were particularly popular. The widely recognized Coro name appeared on jewelry concurrently with other marks, but was officially adopted in 1947, when the company name was officially changed to Coro.
Additional imprints of the company include the premium lines of Vendome and Francois, and moderate lines such as Corocraft. When costume jewelry features a maker's mark, it is considered a signed piece. A symbol or script appears on a clasp or in another inconspicuous place. If a "CR" mark is found, the piece is an early example of a product from the prolific Coro Jewelry Company.
The CR mark appears as CR or C and R, and stands for Cohn & Rosenberger, the earliest incarnation of Coro. The imprint features a large capital C with a capital letter R in a slightly smaller pica size resting at its side. If the mark appears as "C and R, " the word "and" bisects the letter C. Additionally, Coro vintage costume jewelry was signed in many different ways over the years, including. Coro written in script at an angle, sometimes with a Pegasus, or a script Coro without the angle.
Duette or Coro Duette in script with a patent number (the innovative fasteners that locked the two pins together was patented). Coro in script with Craft printed, with a Pegasus. Corocraft in script, at an angle, with the Pegasus and also without. Coro in thick script (1940). Vendôme with a large V or Vendôme etched into the metal.For the most part, Coro pieces that are in excellent condition and or in the original box are the best investment for collectors. Also very collectible are the Coro Duettes and jelly belly pins (although not any pieces described as recast, as these are modern reproductions of jelly belly pins). All Coro figural pins, in general, are highly collectible. Whether you collect vintage jewelry, various types of rhinestone jewelry, moonglow/ lucite, flowers, vintage patriotic, 40s, 50s, 60s etc period pieces, Coro jewelry is sure to satisfy!
