CARNEGIE JEWELRY



Carnegie costume jewelry was made from the
1939 to the 1979.



HATTIE CARNEGIE
was the creator of a fashion empire designing not
only clothing and accessories but jewelry as well.

Carnegie costume jewelry was made from the 1940’s to
the 1970’s.
She often used
specific themes in her jewelry lines, an example being her Oriental
group, her beaded flowers and her poured glass pieces. Some of

her major designers were Norman Norell, Pauline Trigere,
Peggy Moonan, Nandine Effront.

Elegant and innovative, her jewelry remains both wearable and
collectible today. Jewelry under this name was produced for several more
years after her death in 1956.

Hattie Carnegie jewelry was made from about

1939-1979





This
METROPOLITAN MUSEUM
17th or 18tj century seal looks so much like the Hattie Carnegie
clips seen at the right. The seal is 3" by 1-3/8" and was donated by J.
Pierpont Morgan in 1917. It is made of gold, platinum, diamonds and
emeralds. What a wonderful thing! Carnegie must have been inspired by this
piece.

HC Hattie Carnegie
royal king and queen fur clips with pearlized
bellies and clear rhinestone accents in a lovely matte gold tone setting,
circa 1945. Both have the earlier "HC" mark for Hattie Carnegie on the back.
The king is 2-1/4" by 1-1/4", the queen 2-5/8" by 1-1/2". There is a
piece of cream colored felt glued to the back of the queen, as you can see
in the photo, but not on the king. These are such a great couple and can be
worn together or one at a time. In very good vintage condition, the only
flaw is a bit of very light scuffing on a pearl belly, hard to notice unless
you are looking very closely. There is a similar piece, a seal, in fine
jewelry in the Met Museum and on their web site

HERE
. Theirs is from the 17th-18th century and made of carat gold,
platinum and
diamonds. Ours of course is a piece of costume jewelry, but I bet the Met’s
seal was Carnegie’s inspiration for her set.

UNSIGNED NOTE: This
unsigned mermaid brooch is often attributed to Hattie Carnegie, but so
far, we have never seen a single signed version of it at all. This brooch WAS
seen by us back in the late 1990s. It was being offered for sale at the
Las Vegas Jewelry Show and sold by a Chinese company who made
jewelry reproductions, including a few unsigned "Swarovski" looking
brooches. There may be a signed version of this mermaid, and if so, we
would like to see it. So far, I see no evidence that it is by Carnegie at all. Several
styles of other Carnegie brooches similar to this have now been
reproduced.

tone star shapes. These are clip backs and in very good vintage condition
with only slight graying in some of the clear rhinestones.
