Coro is the epitome of "the every woman's jewelry." Chances are, you've come across many pieces of vintage Coro jewelry as a seller, a collector, or a casual jewelry shopper. There is a rich history behind this long running company. Dating back to 1901, the company was started by Emanuel Cohn and Carl Rosenberger and became "Coro" in 1943. In the late 30's, the company was the largest producer of costume jewelry in Rhode Island, employing over 3500 people! Check out Coro History at illusion jewels!
One of my favorite companies to research is Coro costume jewelry, I just love looking through all the jewelry patents available to accurately date my Coro jewelry. There are so many jewelry patents from Coro available for viewing here. I can lose hours perusing them! I love to create little "wish lists" based on some of the patents.
