American costume jewelry labeled “C. R. A.” is extremely rare in the vintage costume jewelry market. According to sources, the company produced costume jewelry for a short time, in the 1980s. However, some owners of such brooches, pins and rings indicate the date of their release – the 1960s. In fact, it is impossible to refute or confirm this. Unfortunately, there is practically no information about the manufacturer or retailing company, or the registered trademark “CRA”. The designs of these pieces range from Egyptian motifs to Art Deco, figural and heraldic, as well as classic flower and plant motif. Jewelry materials traditionally included gold and silver tone alloys, 925 sterling silver, faux pearls, art glass, rhinestones, and enamel.
