The history of the jewelry company Jeri Lou Creations Inc., located in Johnston, Rhode Island, began in 1958. Initially, it was a family business of Gennaro N. Colagiovanni (born 1935) and his wife Doris. Handcrafting exquisite jewelry, mostly scarf clips, the company’s craftsmen used alloys of various metals, creating beautiful textures and filigree designs. In addition to alloys, they used bronze, pewter, gilding and silvering, as well as onyx, faux pearls, crystals and glass imitating precious stones. Traditionally, the marking on the back side of each item includes “Jeri-Lou”.
Noteworthy, after Gennaro N. Colagiovanni retired in 2000, his son David G. Colagiovanni became president of the renewed company (June 30, 2000). According to sources, the company ceased to exist in 2018.
