Cadoro Jewels Corporation, or Cadoro, was founded by Steven Brody and Daniel Stoenescu in Manhattan in 1954. Brody initially went to Wharton Business School, a music institution, and then later studied acting before he met Stoenescu and formed Cadoro . The pair later won the highly prestigious Coty Award in 1970 for their outstanding costume jewelry.
Known to be daring with lifelike and thrilling 3D designs, the pair often combined various textures, metals, and colors to create multifarious and exquisite pieces. Frequently, Brody's eclectic past and the pair's travels to places like Pompeii, India, and Russia inspired the company's award-winning designs.
Most noted are Cadoro's body jewelry collections, which featured breastplates and filigree bras to add modesty to fashionable see-through clothing. Famous Cadoro enthusiasts varied from the classy Duchess of Windsor, to Queen of the Divas Barbra Streisand.
The company closed in 1987 after Brody's retirement as president, but many of their pieces are still held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art & Museum of Modern Art in New York City.BACK TO SHOP

Textured Gilt Seaweed & Coral Enamel Bracelet, Circa 1970
These beautiful 1 1/8" inch wide bangle bracelets are not only in excellent condition with no signs of wear, but are also rich in history. They were made circa 1970 by Cadoro, a Manhattan-based jewelry company founded by Steven Brody and Daniel Stoenescu in 1954.
After brief stints in acting, at the acclaimed Wharton School, and in music school, Brody finally found his passion for making jewelry in Paris. Cadoro quickly set up a brick and mortar on Fifth Avenue, providing beautiful and intricate pieces to the Duchess of Windsor and Barbra Streisand. In 1970, Cadoro won the Coty Awards for its fashionable costume jewelry and to this day, many of their pieces are still held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art. Sadly, Cadoro shut down all operations in 1987 when Brody retired as the company's president.
Following their success at the Coty Awards, Cadoro began making pieces inspired by a trip to India. This textured gilt seaweed and coral enamel bracelet is reminiscent of the coral reefs found off the coast of India. The intricate coral and seaweed motif continues around the entirety of the bracelet, and will intrigue anyone who sees it.
