Cheers to 40 Years: Celebrating Jacqui Accessories' Legacy of Style and Sophistication!
In the early 1900's, a young man named Edmund Valcourt became the General Manager of Coro Jewelry in Providence, Rhode Island. This was the beginning of the Valcourt family involvement in the fashion jewelry industry. Following his father's footsteps, Edmund's son George worked as a designer for many years. In 1952, George established his own company, Valco Jewelry.
Using the knowledge he had learned over the years, George focused on the design and manufacture of woman's brooches, necklace and earring sets. After many successful years in the industry, George's life was cut short in 1963. His oldest son Robert succeeded him as President of Valco Jewelry.
In 1974, George's youngest son Donald formed his own company, D & B Manufacturing, partnering with his older brother Robert. The combination of the brothers' talents made the company a leader in fashion jewelry manufacturing. Robert later decided to leave the company and pursue other interests. Donald kept the company running, successfully, through the early 1980's. In 1984, Donald decided to start a new endeavor, Jacqui Accessories, Inc.
This would be a company which would look into other markets and sources for fashion jewelry. Donald started traveling into the Asian and European markets to seek new designs and materials to bring to our customers, thus the beginning of the import company. In 1991, Donald welcomed the fourth generation, his son Christopher, into the family business. In August 2008, Christopher succeeded his father as President of the company. Though the business has changed and met many challenges over the past many years, it continues to progress.
We strive to find and supply the best quality merchandise at the best prices to our customers; at the same time maintaining the honesty, integrity, and ideals that have been passed down through the Valcourt family over the last century.
