Cadoro was found after WW2. Cadoro jewelry reflected the bold artistic acumen and strong influence of the worldwide travel of its partners, Dan Steneskieu and actor Steve Brody. The business continued for only a few years after Steneskieu's death in the mid- 1970s. Cadoro pieces are among the finest to be found today, each bearing the imprint of these ingenious gentlemen, who were determined to imbue their jewelry with imaginative designs and a " touch of class".
