About the Artist:
Sarah Coventry jewelry was named after the granddaughter of Lyman K. Stuart, the founder of the company. Established in 1949, it is recognized as the oldest direct-selling jewelry company in the world. The company did not design its own jewelry but used other manufacturers to produce its products. Most of the production happened in the state of Rhode Island.
Until 1984, when the company closed its doors, Sarah Coventry jewelry was purchased at home jewelry parties by "fashion directors" throughout the country. However, Sarah Coventry jewelry was re-opened years later by new owners and is currently being distributed by representatives via catalogues, the Internet, home shopping networks, and other means.
This gorgeous demi parure designed by Sarah Coventry includes a bracelet and matching earrings that are composed of emerald-cut faceted stones in a rich golden topaz color. The stones are set in scintillating gold-tone metal. Both the bracelet and the clip-on earrings bear the hallmark “©SARAH COV.”
Manufactured in the early 1970s, the jewelry of this demi parure is in excellent vintage condition, with very minor signs of wear. The bracelet clasp and the clip-on devices of the earrings are in solid working order.
This set would make for a delightful gift for a special occasion such as birthday or anniversary for any woman. Or, if you’re shopping for yourself, this Sarah Coventry demi set would be a wonderful addition to your costume jewelry collection.
