Fashion History Snapshot
Emanuel Cohn founded the Coro empire in the US around 1902 and called it E Cohn & Company. In 1904 Carl Rosenberger became a partner and the firm was renamed Cohn & Rosenberger. Carl Rosenberger was responsible for the growth of the company, and by combining their names the new name of 'Coro'was created.
Steady growth continued under his guidance. A factory opened in New York and the line of items expanded. Both' Jewelcraft' and' Corocraft' were the names used by the company Coro. In the 1960s they were the biggest selling company of costume jewellery in the UK.
The name Coro was officially used for the first time on jewellery in 1943. The company went on to become the largest costume jewellery manufacturer in the world.
