In 1949 Charles Stuart (founder of the Sarah Coventry Jewelry Company) founded the Emmons Jewelry Company to honor his wife Caroline Emmons Stuart. Like Sarah Coventry jewelry, the Emmons line was sold at home parties. The retail prices of the Emmons pieces were higher than Sarah Coventry pieces (Sarah Coventry was founded in honor of his daughter). Today Emmons pieces are rarer than Sarah Coventry pieces. The company was located in New York City, and did business until 1981, at which time it closed its doors for the last time. The EMMONS mark came into use in 1955.

Vintage late 1960's early 1970's Emmons 60" lightweight gold chain with clusters of 5 faux art glass beads. I believe the beads are plastic but look like glass with aventurine in them. This necklace comes apart and you can wear it shorter... 16"! You have a choker if you want it! It's actually two necklaces with spring clasps connecting the two. Light Goldtone metal. Hangtag Emmons. Excellent condition. Rare item.
