Officially founded in 1934 and located in Providence, Rhode Island, Danecraft company originates from the famous manufacturer of jewelry “Primavera” – a goldsmith from Pescara, Italy. The creator of the company – Italian jeweler Victor Primavera, a descendant of an old family, which previously produced jewelry under the brand “Primavera” for noble families in Italy. By the way, Italian word “Primavera” means “spring”. Meanwhile, “Primavera” was well known for manufacture of the jewelry for the royal and very wealthy families. Primavera workshops existed until 1910, then Victor Primavera emigrated to the United States, where he created jewellery well-known to us under the name of Danecraft, still existing company.
Victor Primavera settled in Providence, the capital of Rhode Island, which is also the center of the American jewelry industry. He renamed the Company into “Danecraft”, and this name existed until his death in 1977. After that, new managers renamed the company to «Felch-Wehr». However, today, the Primavera family privately owns the company, while Victor II heads the Board of Directors. The youngest Victor Primavera, became chief executive officer and the daughter Gale – vice-president of administration.

Victor Primavera designated his preference to Danish craft in the name of the company – «Danecraft» in the 1930-ies. It sounds like a tribute to the Danish and Scandinavian craftsmanship in general. And it is clear why the most popular motifs of the famous brand are Scandinavian floral theme, drawings and designs taken from nature.
The brand has become known for figural fun decorations that can cheer us up every day. In particular, charming kittens, dogs, miniature men, amazing flowers, garden, fairy and household plots. And another line of «Danecraft» – a variety of elegant jewelry – luxury necklaces, rings and bracelets.
