The History of Emmons
Lyman K. Stuart founded Emmons Home Fashions in 1948 and named the company in honor of his mother, Caroline Emmons Stuart. The company soon changed its name to Emmons Jewelry, Inc.
Not long after the Emmons brand was born, Sarah Coventry jewelry was introduced with both lines sold at home parties. The newer line was named after Stuart’s granddaughter, Sarah Coventry Beale (although some references claim that Sarah was his daughter).
Emmons contracted with jewelry manufacturers to provide the styles that the company believed its customers would purchase and was made in all of the popular styles of the day. Both brands’ jewelry was often sold in matching sets.
During the 1950s and 1960s, Sarah Coventry jewelry was the more popular of the jewelry lines and it continued to be offered at home parties for a few years after Emmons’s 1981 bankruptcy.
