History: Some 2,000+ years ago the Romans tapped into their skills and techniques behind metalworking, gem cutting, and pottery to begin creating glass. These glass items were often valued more than similar productions using precious metals such as silver and gold.

The technology behind gold plated jewelry is credited to Italian chemist Luigi Brugnatelli. In 1805, he discovered the process for electroplating. It was quickly adopted for jewelry styles, with many Victorian jewelry pieces using gold plating.

Sarah Coventry was an American luxury jewelry brand named after the granddaughter of Lyman K. Stuart, the founder of the company. Established in 1949, the sales force was at first all male. Thousands of women and some men were recruited to sell jewelry at Sarah Coventry home jewelry parties.  Sarah Coventry Jewelry went bankrupt in 1981, was sold several times afterward, then died again in 2009.
