Lyman K. Stuart, son of Charles H. Stuart, founded Emmons Home Fashions in 1948, naming the company in honor of his mother, Caroline Emmons Stuart. Soon afterward, the company's name was changed to Emmons Jewelry, Inc.
Sarah Coventry jewelry was introduced not long after the Emmons brand was born, and both lines were sold at home parties. The newer line's name honored Lyman Stuart's granddaughter, Sarah Coventry Beale (although some references claim that Sarah was his daughter). Coventry jewelry was typically less expensive than the Emmons-branded designs.

Emmons contracted with jewelry manufacturers to provide the styles the company felt its customers would purchase. Jewelry for both brands was often sold in matching sets. Sarah Coventry jewelry was most popular during the 1950s and 1960s and continued to be offered at home parties for a few years after Emmons 1981 bankruptcy.

      Founded by David Lisner in 1904, the company started as a wholesaler and was well known as the importer of Schiaparelli jewelry. The company produced their own jewelry in Providence, RI starting in the early 30s and employed the newest materials such as Dupont's new colored acrylic plastic called Lucite, as well as clear and colored rhinestones (particularly aurora borealis) and lava stones, as well as chromed, silver-plated, and black japanned metal. Lisner is has become very collectible as more vintage jewelry lovers appreciate the wonderful shapes and colors.

        Parisian jewelry Louis Rousselet (1892-1980) was known for his glass and Galalith beadwork and pearls.  His business grew into one of the largest bead suppliers in the world and workers trained for years to learn his techniques.  Rousselet was a true artist creating new types and innovative designs for glass beads and pearls.  His work appeared in the boutiques of Coco Chanel as well as Jaques Fath and Piere Balmain.  His jewelry was worn by many celebrities including movie and theater stars.  His daughter continued on with the business which eventually closed in the 1970s.   Most of his jewelry was unsigned and came with a paper tag.  His components and findings are unique and recognizable. Signed pieces are very rare.

        Marcel Boucher started his one costume jewelry company in 1937 after stints at Cartier and Mazer Brothers.  Born in Paris, he moved with Cartier to New York City.  Boucher was known for his bold designs of animals, plants and people as well as his enamel work.  He married late in life to his former assistant, Sandra, who ran the company after his death in 1964 through 1972.  Boucher used many different marks which can help date the pieces.   “MB Sterling” - 1942 and 1944. From 1944 and 1949 pieces may have a Phrygian cap above his initials. After 1944, pieces may have either of the following marks -  “Marcel Boucher” or “Boucher.” If the piece has the copyright symbol it is after 1955.  Serial number dating may be found here.

            The Emmons Jewelry Co. & Sarah Coventry. Lyman K. Stuart, son of Charles H. Stuart, founded Emmons Home Fashions in 1948, naming the company in honor of his mother, Caroline Emmons Stuart. Soon afterward, the company's name was changed to Emmons Jewelry, Inc.
            Sarah Coventry jewelry was introduced not long after the Emmons brand was born, and both lines were sold at home parties. The newer line's name honored Lyman Stuart's granddaughter, Sarah Coventry Beale (although some references claim that Sarah was his daughter). Coventry jewelry was typically less expensive than the Emmons-branded designs.

            Emmons contracted with jewelry manufacturers to provide the styles the company felt its customers would purchase. Jewelry for both brands was often sold in matching sets. Sarah Coventry jewelry was most popular during the 1950s and 1960s and continued to be offered at home parties for a few years after Emmons 1981 bankruptcy.
