VENDOME
  1944-79

   Coro, Cohen & Rosenberger began early in the 1900's in Providence, Rhode Island. As CORO they are familiar to all costume jewelry lovers. CORO made jewelry from about 1920 until the 1970's, and probably did it under more different names than any other maker.  Vendome (1944-1979) , Corocraft (1935-1980), and Duette are just three examples. The Coro mark was on the more modestly priced jewelry. Corocraft, Vendome and Francois were the better and higher priced lines. Adolph Katz was one of the best known of the designers, but there were many others responsible for the wonderful style of Coro jewelry.

   Vendome, probably best known for glittering faceted glass bead necklaces and earrings, also featured other wonderful jewelry such as the cabochon, enamel and rhinestone pieces pictured below.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
