Jewelcraft to Corocraft and Coro jewellery. With Vendome
One of the brand names used by the jewellery company Coro was Jewelcraft. It was used here in the UK quite a lot, because of the court case that Ciro Pearls the UK company had with Coro – over the right not to use their name here as it was too like their own. Ciro won and so Coro was not allowed to use their brand name of Coro here and that means that many of the pieces found here in the UK will be marked “Jewelcraft” or “Corocraft” instead. All the ones we will be showing are signed – unless they come within a set and at least one other is signed. But I will tell you about this when I show the jewellery.
In this blog, we will gradually add the photographs and signatures of Jewelcraft jewellery that we have found and hopefully build up quite a jewellery library of images. Below is a pair of large earrings by Jewelcraft with a red enamel design and next to it the Jewelcraft markings on their jewellery.
