About the Maker:
Victor Primavera, Sr. and James Felch founded Felch & Company in 1934 in Providence, Rhode Island with Victor in charge of design and James in charge of administration and sales. In 1945, Primavera bought out Felch and changed the name to Danecraft. Prior to the buyout, jewelry was marked with a C imposed over an F. Since the buyout in 1945, jewelry is marked Danecraft. Primavera, Sr. died in 1977. The company is still owned and operated by the Primavera family. Danecraft primarly makes jewelry of sterling and gold-filled.

Although officially formed as a company in 1934, the history of Danecraft has roots which can be traced back to Italy for several centuries to the famous name of Primavera. The Primavera’s were jewelry artisans in the beautiful area of Pescara, Italy. It was there that the family became well known throughout the region for their ability to design and make jewelry for royalty and wealthy families. Often one of the jewelry artisans would go directly into the home of a patron to design and reproduce a cherished object of art into jewelry. This continued in Italy until 1910 when Mr. Victor Primavera, Sr. immigrated to the United States.
