Coro made jewellery from 1920 until the 1970's, they apparently produced jewellery under different company names for example "Vendome", "Corocraft" and "Duette". The signature marks are some signed "Corocraft", some signed "Francois" this mark was used for the higher end of the market and attracted the wealthier clients. The signature mark "Vendome" the jewellery line which started in 1944 was also attracting the higher end of the market, best know for dynamic glass beads and they used cabochon and rhinestones.
