The Cats Pajamas: Sarah Coventry jewelry
Vintage Sarah Coventry jewelry is pretty and affordable jewelry that was sold at home jewelry parties during the 1950s and 60s. It was most popular during those decades but continued trading until the early 1980s. Sarah Coventry jewelry was owned by The Emmons company and named after Lyman Stuart’s granddaughter. They didn’t manufacture jewelry themselves but contracted manufacturers to provide designs they felt would appeal to their customers.
Jewelry was often sold in matching sets, for example matching necklace, bracelet and earrings. These sets are harder to find than the individual pieces but are more collectible, and happily we have lots of their beautiful jewelry sets.
Sarah Coventry vintage jewelry can be identified via various different symbols which were stamped on the back of the jewelry or on metal hangtags. The symbols include: SARAH; SAC; Sarah Cov; COVENTRY; or SARAHCOV.
