Avon's roots as a perfume company go back to 1886, when David H. McConnell founded the California Perfume Company in New York City and, with the help of a clever businesswoman named Persis Foster Eames Albee, he developed a multi-level marketing business type that empowered women to work for themselves, selling fragrances and toiletries to other women across the United States.
But Avon did not start producing costume jewelry until 1963. The first Avon costume jewelry pieces were not offered for sale but sent to customers as a free gift when they purchased a certain amount of cosmetics or toiletries. Because the customers were so fond of this costume jewelry set, in 1971, jewelry got its own section in the Avon catalog.
