The history of the Ultra costume jewelry brand, launched by Ro-An Inc, began in 1976 in northern Providence, Rhode Island. However, the jewelry manufacturing company Ro-An Inc began operations back in 1953 in Taunton, Massachusetts. In 1967, Ro-An Inc was incorporated in Johnston, Rhode Island.

It was a highly successful multi-million dollar company that sold its jewelry both domestically and internationally. The president of the company, which employed approximately 200 people, was Anthony R. Spagnole, and the general manager was Daniel DeBarros.
Ro-An Inc produced Ultra-labeled costume jewelry for about ten years, from 1976 to 1985, although the company itself ceased to exist only in 2004. Handmade Ultra marked jewelry is extremely rare and highly collectible.
