The history of the company that made these whimsical pins remains a complete mystery. In fact, any information about the trademark, registered patents, the company’s owners, or any traces are unavailable. However, some searches lead to one place – Vero Beach, Florida. In the 1960s, there were several jewelry workshops and stores of the same name, where dynasties of famous jewelers worked. For example, DuBose & Sons – five generations of jewelers. Noteworthy, the first Vero store opened in 1912, and the area became known as Vero Beach only in 1925. Meanwhile, DuBose was one of the many other jewelry workshops which also operated in Vero Beach.
The distinctive marking on the back of each item includes “Vero” in capital letters with a copyright sign in a rectangular frame. Produced in the 1960-80s, these unique pins have their own characteristics, which make them quite recognizable.
Traditionally, the craftsmen of this company used metal alloys of gold and silver tones, multi-colored enamels and a minimum of rhinestones. The designs include fun figurative animal pins and holiday decorations. Among them, in particular, are Christmas, Easter decorations, pins for Halloween and other holidays.
Undoubtedly, any Vero brooch would make a great gift or a valuable addition to your vintage jewelry collection.
