This 1950s necklace of intertwining vines of golden topaz and citrine rhinestones with dangling teardrop citrine stones was named Empire by Coro and designed by Adolph Katz. It was one of the pieces featured in a 1954 Life ad with the slogan: "the gift that always wins her heart…Coro Jewelry". The gold-tone flexible snake chain has an adjustable hook-and-tail closure embellished with a citrine glass teardrop. This piece was part of Coro's high-end Corocraft line.
Gold-plated fretwork embellished with baguette-shaped diamanté form the center of this lovely 1950s snake chain necklace by Coro. A pear-shaped diamanté adorns the tail of the hook closure. This piece is another great example of the work Adolph Katz produced for Corocraft, Coro's high-end line. What's interesting is that this piece appears in an October 1, 1953 Vogue ad with the following copy: "excitingly beautiful as Paris by night ... Vendome by Coro". (Vendome later became another one of the company's high-end lines.)
