DESIGNER HISTORY - In 1886 the AVON company, originally named the 'The California Perfume Company', was created by David H McConnell. Selling perfume and toiletries door to door, the company grew steadily through the years enabling AVON to become the leading cosmetics and toiletries company in the world. Throughout the following decades, many well known jewellery designers and celebrities have designed jewellery collections for the AVON company and their jewellery has become the focus of many AVON jewellery collectors of today. The many beautiful collections included designs by Jose Maria Barrera. His earring and necklace set featured here was named 'Granada'.
