These fine quality handcrafted figurative brooches marked “CT” are worthy of knowing their author. Unfortunately, I still do not have firm confidence in the origin of the CT jewelry brand.
Among the few companies that labeled their jewelry with CT, two brands attract my attention most of all. Interestingly, both owners of this brand are well-known personalities in the USA. In particular, registered in 1993 trademark owned by the famous supermodel Cheryl Tiegs. Noteworthy, Cheryl was the owner of six “Cheryl Tiegs” brands for the production of sportswear and women’s clothing, watches, wigs, and jewelry. And only two of them were registered under the initials “CT”. “Cheryl Tiegs” jewelry brand was active from 1993 to 2001, and “CT” marked jewelry produced for no more than five years, from 1993 to 1998. According to the press, the supermodel first unveiled her jewelry line on September 22, 1993.
The second most likely owner of the CT brand was Harold Lloyd Jenkins (September 1, 1933 – June 5, 1993), known by the stage name Conway Twitty. Few people know that he, like Cheryl Tiegs, was the owner of 6 brands for the production of fabrics, furniture, souvenirs, and jewelry. His “CT” marked jewelry brand existed from 1969 to 1983.
Another company that produced CT-marked jewelry was New England Sterling, Inc., located in Cranston, Rhode Island. The company, which operated since 1934, registered the CT brand, which was active from 1997 to 1999. However, its marking is different, since the letters CT are used with dots – С.Т.

And now a few more misconceptions associated with this marking. Some people mistakenly associate Carucci with CT jewelry, but if you look at Carucci’s labeling style, it’s easy to see that it has nothing to do with CT. Also, among the owners of the CT label is Rucinni company, but this is wrong. The company has been producing beautiful costume jewelry since 1995, labeling items with the full name Rucinni, or selling unmarked items on branded Rucinni cards.
