Tacoa vintage costume jewelry (1964-1994)
The history of the American jewelry brand Tacoa began in March 1964 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Charles Stone (1922 – 2003) was one of the founders of Tacoa Jewelry Inc. Since 1978, owner and president of Tacoa Inc. was John F. McClure (b. 1951). Initially a small family business, the company has grown into a huge corporation with subsidiaries registered over the years in several states. In particular, Rhode Island (1978-1996), Georgia (1964), Delaware (1994), Texas (1994-1996), New York (1994-1998), and Florida (1994). The company went through several re-registrations and mergers. As a result, the subsidiaries ceased to exist in the late 1990s.
The production of jewelry by various workshops explains the variety of materials, designs and styles used. Besides, even such well-known jewelry brands as Florenza and BEAU Jewels created jewelry for Tacoa.
Among the materials used by craftsmen were metal alloys, pewter, silver, gold, plastic, and wood. Also, enamel, genuine lucite and crystal, cubic zirconia, unique shell and mother of pearl, rhinestones and art glass imitating natural stones. Created in different styles, from Boho and haute couture, classic floral and modernist geometric, Victorian Revival and tribal African.
