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 afterwards, 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.

This is a really unique piece. Large center rhinestone flower with seven sparkling stones is set into a brass flower with Millegraine edging. This is in turn set into a larger setting of six brass swirls with brass ball ends. The level of detail on this piece is astounding. No maker but construction of the back indicates a 1950s design. The millegrain setting is a delicate beaded style.

Condition: Minor wear on brass commensurate with age. Much more noticable in this closeup than when wearing. One of the swirls has a small fold. Rhinestones are all good and really sparkle.
