Collectors of fashion jewellery have nearly all heard about Sarah Coventry jewellery, a favourite brand that was sold for several decades. But did you know that Sarah Coventry was just one of the lines produced by Emmons Jewellery Inc?
Lyman K. Stuart, son of Charles H. Stuart, founded Emmons Home Fashions in 1948, naming the company in honour of his mother, Caroline Emmons Stuart. Soon afterward, the company's name was changed to Emmons Jewellery, Inc.
Emmons Jewellery was sold by the original company until about 1981 when it declared bankruptcy. Several markings were used throughout the life of the company.
- the initials Ce, with a small "e" tucked inside a larger "C" and placed under a crown.
- the letters EmJ.
- the word Emmons, either alone or with a © symbol above the name in earlier years, later pieces had the symbol stamped to the left of the name.
Sarah Coventry jewellery was introduced not long after the Emmons brand was born. The newer line's name honoured Lyman Stuart's granddaughter, Sarah Coventry Beale. Coventry jewellery was typically less expensive than the Emmons-branded designs and also marked with a variety of symbols throughout its existence.
- Sarah Cov
- Some items had metal hang tags with markings.
- Jewelry boxes were marked with larger plates.
