"OVER 1500 PIECES OF VINTAGE SARAH COVENTRY JEWELRY AND SARAH COVENTRY JEWELRY'S LADY COVENTRY LINE IN STOCK"
*Gail: Top of the page has the links you can go to: Sarah Coventry, Emmons, Avon & Coro, Designers A-L, Designers M-Z, Unsigned Pieces, New Additions, Jeweled Gifts. Very 1990's style / "simple" site, but full of great info and pics (albeit usually just one, and with a dastardly watermark over it - sometimes can't see the piece ... grrr). Likes to type in all caps. sigh. But great info on each piece. And prices are listed. And circa/years.
Site owner: About Us doesn't give author's name, but they're from Nashua, NH
"The jewelry pages of our on-line catalogue list a fabulous selection of vintage costume jewelry, Victorian and estate jewelry."
*Gail: So much info, author had to write in small text. The two areas most folks will want to view for research: Designer, and Jewelry Catalogue, both listed on the left side menu, and listed below. Each item s/he lists is quite detailed. And when you are viewing a designer in the Designer link, don't forget to view (if available - s/he doesn't have signature pics for all the designers) the signature link to view that designer's signature link/mark/initials.
