vendome.jpg


I find it hard to believe that Vendome was established as a subsidiary of Coro...however Vendome was the SUPERIOR line of jewelry as you will see as you become familiar with their jewelry. The mark was used as early as 1944 on charm bracelets and faux pearl jewelry, but the Vendome line which began in the 1950's did not become popular until the early 1960's, largely due to beautiful designs introduced by Helen Marion, Vendome's principal designer. Basically, Vendome replaced Corocraft which up to that time marked the higher quality jewelry made by Coro. Vendome jewelry used the best of imported rhinestones and as you can see below in the black set, FACETED CRYSTAL BEADS. The clarity and brilliance of the stones and top quality metalwork combined in artistically expressive designs were the main factors behind Vendome's success. The jewelry is highly collectible (per Fred Rezazadeh of Costume Jewelry, A Practical handbook), and should continue to RISE in prices.
