Here is a beautiful vintage silver tone Sarah Coventry pineapple necklace, bracelet and earrings set. The name of the set is actually “Simply Elegant” but is commonly referred to as “pineapple” due to the design of the bracelet. The set is in very good condition. The metal is bright and shiny. I am getting rid of it because I somehow ended up buying two of them! Bummer! I must have gotten excited! So my loss is your gain!
“Sarah Coventry, started in 1950, was named after Charles H. Stuart’s granddaughter, Sarah Ann. Stuart had opened Sarah Coventry’s sister company, Emmons Jewelers, Inc., during 1949. Both companies did not sell jewelry through department or jewelry stores. Their costume jewelry was sold direct to consumers via parties hosted by “Fashion Directors.” Fashion directors could move up the ranks and become Unit Directors then, later, Area Managers, with the ultimate goal of becoming National Sales Manager if they chose that path. Sarah Coventry costume jewelry became quite popular in its time because of the quality of the jewelry as well as the jewelry’s designs. Interestingly, Sarah Coventry jewelry was not designed or manufactured in-house, all Sarah Coventry costume jewelry was made by other companies in Rhode Island.
As the popularity of Sarah Coventry increased, so did the visibility of its jewelry. For example, pieces of Sarah Coventry jewelry were awarded on the popular television show, "Queen for a Day." "Queen for a Day" ran between 1956-1964 and again from 1969-1970. Each contestant had gone through some difficult times and would explain to the audience why she should be Queen. An applause meter would determine which lady would win all of the prizes. The popularity of costume jewelry started to decline during the 1970s, as did the sales of Sarah Coventry jewelry. The company was sold in 1984 and the jewelry parties stopped. In the last few years, new Sarah Coventry jewelry has been sold on the Shopping Network and, again, through home parties. The pieces that you want are the vintage jewelry. Their beauty and quality still shine.” (Source: http://www.life123.com/hobbies/antiques-collectibles/vintage/sarah-coventry-vintage-jewelry.shtml)
