Carolee

CAROLEE JEWELRY
circa 1980 to present
by Carol Friedlander

One of their brochures says, "All Carolee pins feature hand set genuine
crystals. Each piece is hand polished and comes with a lifetime warranty".


CAROLEE jewelry has been made for over 40 years, and they are
best known for their Limited Edition pieces, some of which can be seen below, as well
as their bridal collection. Their jewelry is sold in many major department
stores.

"To celebrate Spring, I have designed these four Limited Edition pins for 2004.
Each hand set crystal pin bears the date and my stamp of authenticity. Only
1,000 pieces of each pin will be produced. Carolee."

Included in the 2004 collection were a dragonfly, orchid, floral and butterfly
brooch. Limited editions were also made in other years.

The 2005 Limited Edition collection is probably my very favorite, and those are
shown in the row below here..
