Coro Mexico - Unpatented
During WWII and until about 1950, Coro contracted Taller Borda Silversmiths, owned by Hector Aquilar, to produce jewelry out of Mexico in response to the shortage of metals in the US.  The pieces are spectacular and an interpretation of 40s style that is uniquely Mexican. This jewelry was not patented as it wasn't created by Coro's designers.

Hector Aguilar had previously worked for Spratling's "Las Delicias" before opening his own studio.
