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 charming and playful Sarah Coventry gold-tone bee brooch was designed and released in the late 1960s. It is one of many brooches fashioned after the elements of Nature by the jeweler. This piece is in excellent vintage condition with no loss or scratches to the gold-tone metal and with pin and clasp mechanism in good working order. The signature mark “Sarah” appears on the back of the brooch.
This delightful, little bee brooch is just the sort of costume jewelry item that will add a touch of delight to any outfit. It would also make for a fun gift for any occasion for that special lady or young woman in your life.
