Lovely signed vintage demi parure. This Sarah Coventry Etruscan style necklace and ring set is in mint (possibly unworn) condition. The set is in a silver tone metal with raised shiny hemispheres set in a darker silvertone background which provides a more aged feeling. The necklace is linked to a silver tone metal chain which has a hook fastener which allows it to be worn at various lengths. The other end of the chain has a signed SARAH COV medallion. The ring features the same design as the necklace medallion and is fully adjustable so will fit all sized fingers. The ring is signed SARAH GB or with a Copyright symbol.
It dates from the 1960s.
The whole set weighs 26 grams. The necklace chain measures measures 47 cm so the pendant sits around the neckline. The medallion measures 4 x 2.5 cm. The ring measures 3 x 2 cm.
Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
Despite the ‘designer’ name Sarah Coventry vintage costume jewellery is not made by one designer. Sarah Coventry was the name of a company based in the US (1949 – 1980s) who had emigrated from Coventry in England, UK. They employed different designers to produce their jewellery. They adopted a method similar to Avon in that they used house parties to sell their ranges “for the woman who dares to be different.” Some pieces are made in Canada or the UK.
