Capri Jewelry (1952-1977). 

Sol Smith established Capri, a producer of high-end, limited-edition costume jewelry, in New York in 1952. Capri had annual sales of almost $20 million in its prime.

Capri was praised for its intriguing, vibrant brooches, which included floral motifs, fruit, shells, leaves, and animals.

Capri and renowned jewelry design firm DeNicola merged in 1970. The DeNicola brand ceased in 1973.
