Excerpted Packaging Information/Instructions; Product Details; Online Research Information/About.... (attributed to http://jewelry.about.com/od/sarahcoventry/Sarah_Coventry_Jewelry.htm AND http://jewelry.about.com/od/sarahcoventry/a/What-Is-Sarah-Coventry-Jewelry.htm ): “Most Sarah Coventry jewelry was sold at home fashion parties from 1949 until the company changed hands in the 1980's. At different times the jewelry was marked "Coventry," "Sarah Coventry," and "SC," although at times combinations of the names were used. Sarah Coventry is a favorite of many costume jewelry collectors...

Company’s Origins. 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. Many references credit Charles with founding the company, but the most reliable sources name Lyman as the company's owner.

Emmons Jewelry was sold at home parties, a retailing practice that is still popular today to market jewelry and all sorts of other items. You may have attended a home party -- a hostess invites friends to attend, and products are showcased, from jewelry to housewares. Hostesses typically earn products in exchange for their efforts, and the dollar value of their earnings increases as attendees make purchases.

Emmons and Sarah Coventry Time Span and Jewelry Marks. Emmons Jewelry was sold by the original company until about 1981, when it declared bankruptcy, and several markings were used throughout the life of the company. Marks include:

The initials Ce, with a small e tucked inside a larger C, and placed under a crown the letters EmJ the word Emmons, either alone or with a © symbol above the name in earlier years; later pieces had the symbol stamped to the left of the name.

Sarah Coventry jewelry was introduced not long after the Emmons brand was born, and was also sold through jewelry 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, and also marked with a variety of symbols throughout its existence.

*©SARAH

*SAC

*Sarah Cov

*©COVENTRY

*Some items had metal hang tags with markings

*Jewelry boxes were marked with larger plates

Who Designed Sarah Coventry Jewelry? The Emmons company did not design or manufacture its jewelry, choosing instead to contract with jewelry manufacturers to provide the styles the company felt its customers would purchase.

Jewelry for both brands was often sold in matching sets, such as a coordinating necklace, bracelet and earrings. It is more difficult to find complete sets today, but collectors watch for pieces to complete their collections when they scour flea markets and antique shops.

Sarah Coventry jewelry is easier to find than pieces marked with the Emmons brand, since it was somewhat less expensive to begin with and sold for a longer period of time. You'll find pieces made from both silvertone and gold-colored metals, often set with large faux pearls and other gemstone simulants.

Sarah Coventry jewelry was most popular during the 1950s and 1960s, and continued to be offered at home parties for a few years after the company's 1981 bankruptcy. The brand passed through a few more owners, including a Canadian company, but never regained its former popularity and has disappeared from today's market.”
