Simao was drawn to the company “because of the high quality product we produced.” Having been with the company for 28 years, Simao has worked in many positions, but his most recent position is where his heart is. He is a problem solver and likes the idea of having to work with his hands to make something work everyday.

Before Nicholas DeCristofaro Sr. started Carla Corporation, he was a prominent member in silver jewelry manufacturing as a cofounder of Beaucraft. A hard working toolmaker and craftsmen by trade, Nicholas wanted to start a gold jewelry company that offered high quality products with the best service to both large and small retailers. He believed it was important that small businesses were afforded the same quality service and opportunities as large retailers. It is with this belief that Carla Corporation was founded.

In January of 1965 Nicholas established Carla Corporation with his son in law Ralph Fleming joining him shortly after in 1968. The company started buying and selling finished product as well as making its own findings and finished jewelry to distribute to the small independent retail Jewelers. The company grew rapidly and soon became one of the leading earring manufacturing companies in the US. It was quality and service the company was founded on, and that is how we continue today.

So here we are: a small company in a small state with a big passion.

We take pride in everything we do and hope you can see our passion in each of the products we make.
