“Most collectors of vintage jewelry are well acquainted with the designer mark Sarah Cov. However, the founder of this company, Charles H. Stuart, wasn’t content to found a company solely in honor of his daughter Sarah. He also had a sister company to honor his wife – Caroline Emmons Stuart called Emmons Jewelry.

The company was founded in 1949 and, as was the case with Sarah Coventry jewelry, Emmons jewelry was sold through the home party plan. The early directors of the company were typically men, but women representatives took their place as the norm after the mid 1950s.

Emmons designs were well made, good looking and easy on the wallet. Often a design was made in matching pieces – brooches, earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets. Full parures are much harder to find now than single pieces.

Emmons jewelry was a slightly higher priced line when it was produced, so the production numbers were lower than for those of Sarah Coventry jewelry. For this reason, Emmons vintage jewelry commands higher prices than those of the sister designer, Sarah Cov.”
