Learn More About Designer Vintage Jeweller, Sarah Coventry

We have a lot of treasured pieces in the shop by renown vintage jeweller, Sarah Coventry.

Sarah Coventry

Here’s a little background and time line about the coveted vintage label.

**************************************************************************

Charles H. Stuart was the founder of Emmons Home Fashion named after his wife Caroline Emmons.

Sarah Coventry came into being in November 1949 named after his granddaughter Sarah Ann Coventry.

1949 – The first known marks were “Coventry” which were used for both men’s and ladies jewellery.

1950 – The next known mark was “Sarah Coventry” when the mark “SC” was first used and was still in use in 1953 for costume jewellery.

1951 – The mark “Sarah” was used and was continued to be incorporated into later jewellery.

1960 – The mark “Sarah Cov” began to be used.

1950-1960 – The mark “SAC” has been attributed to Sarah Coventry jewellery but there are no records indicating when it was used.

Emmons and Sarah Coventry jewellery purchased their designs manufactured by other producers of costume jewellery. They started their business under home fashion shows and continued to run the business in this way until 1984 when the home shows were discontinued.

1984 – They sold the business to a Chicago based firm who produced costume jewellery for a Canadian Company who continued to use the same name. Sarah Coventry continued making fine jewellery with precious gemstone under P B Manufactures.

**************************************************************************

With these markings, we are able to properly identify which era a particular piece was made in. Signed pieces are of course always more collectable!

At Dulcetfig, we love and are always collecting pieces made originally by Sarah Coventry from 1949-1980s.
