Signed Corel vintage costume jewelry
Corel vintage costume jewelry
The Corel vintage jewelry brand dates back to 1971. In fact, it is related to the famous jewelry brand Coro, which in 1969 became the property of Richton, Intl. Corp. Richton, who owned a 51% stake in Coro, as well as the Oscar de la Renta brand, registered the new Corel brand in 1971. Corel-branded jewelry was produced for about 10 years, since in 1979 all of Coro’s companies went bankrupt. And even the remaining stock of the company sold subsequently also went bankrupt in the early 1990s. Thus, all products marked Corel are vintage and collectible. Noteworthy, the marking contains umlaut in the word “corel” and looks like this – CORЁL. However, the common brand name both in paper sources and on the Internet is “Corel”.
Hand-made high-quality Corel costume jewelry is extremely rare in the market of vintage jewelry and desirable for collectors. Accordingly, the price of these products will increase every year.
Traditionally, the masters of this company used metal and metal alloys of gold tone, multicolor enamel, rhinestones and crystals. The Christmas motif decorations were popular at the time – brooches in the form of a Christmas tree, Santa Claus, candles, angels and bells.
