    The aqua and clear rhinestone necklace and it’s matching brooch are made by Coro in the 1940s. The Hand Holding Bouquet brooch and coordinating Hand Stick Pin are by Coro, 1940s, as well. The large aqua brooch is unsigned ... and could be by Vendome — a Coro brand. This entire, somewhat delicate, vintage collection came to me as a set in 2018.

    The HHB and HSP are not marked Sterling. Those familiar with Coro ... and Coro brooches will know the larger, iconic, vermeil Coro Hand (and earring set). Yet, the two hands in this post might be vermeil. Or not. There is absolutely no gold or gold tone wear on these pieces, so, of course, there is no visible silver. The glow of the surface metal makes a compelling case for gold plate. The back design of the two here is equal to that of the Coro vermeil lovebirds.

    Though there are arguments that could certainly be made against retention of the necklace chain, my goal with this post is to show these items as they were originally made ... and shipped by Coro: therefore the original chain is in place.

    Hand Holding Bouquet Aqua Brooch — 2 1/4” x 1”
    Hand Stick Pin — 2 1/2” x 3/4”
    Pendant — 1 1/4”
    Coro Pendant-Matching Aqua Brooch — 1 1/2”
    Necklace Length — 14 3/4”
    Earrings — 1/4”

      Coro has been around for over a century. In “Researching Vintage Jewelry” , every maker is alphabetized, but “Coro” has it’s own chapter, not just under “C”.
      Beautiful 80 years old pieces, exceptionally retained in their original condition.

      Jenni — Thank you. I, as well, like Coro a lot. Some of their pieces are amazing ... as good as costume jewelry making ever gets.

      RichmondLori — Thank you.

      Eileen — Interesting information. Thank you. This aqua is yummy.

      Trey — Thank you.

      Thanks for all the amazing Loves on these. I so appreciate each one.

      So agree, Elisabethan. Such a compelling aqua. TY.

      Such delicate beauty... and that aqua is heavenly! I think the pendant on its chain is perfection. Thank you for sharing these wonderful photographs. I'll have to look out for Coro more often <3

      rhineisfine — Thank you. Coro does have some amazing creations.

      Gorgeous colorway, and design, I wonder if renee would correct your colour of aqua.... just a thought ;-) !
    11. Daisy1000 Daisy1000, 11 months ago
      Thank you, PhilDMorris. And that suggestion is an excellent one. I’m sure she would be much more precise than my somewhat flat “aqua.” Smiles.
