"Hattie Carnegie" in script on oval cartouche
This 1950s pink-bead 3-strand necklace by Hattie Carnegie is a delicious confection that is guaranteed to be a conversation starter. This piece is composed of beads in a variety of sizes, shapes, materials (both glass and plastic), and shades of pink that showcase the designer’s imagination and design flare. Not for the faint-hearted, this piece has substantial weight and a tongue-in-groove clasp topped with a large pink-art-glass stone set in gold-tone metal.
These unsigned 1950s earrings with a large sapphire-blue-art-glass stone surrounded with fuchsia glass stones and faux pearls are beautiful. These earrings exhibit typical Schreiner characteristics: stunning art glass, inverted rhinestones, large dog-tooth prongs and donut-hole clip-backs. The combination of blues, fuchsia and white in a silver-tone setting will compliment many outfits, from jeans to dressy attire.
These faceted kite-shaped glass stones in sapphire blue and smoky grey are another example of the high-quality materials and imaginative combinations of shapes and colors in Schiaparelli jewelry. Here the shape of this 1950s brooch is mirrored in the shape of the stones, with round glass stones with an aurora borealis (AB) finish used as accents. The AB stones add an iridescence that changes with the light. The setting is rhodium-plated metal with a roll-over safety clasp. You can wear this gorgeous piece in a variety of positions -- the photos show it vertically, so it looks like a kite, horizontally and at a right angle. You decide which of these choices you prefer, or you may think of another!

The setting is gold-tone with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp and safety chain. Wear this versatile piece of many colors with clothes shades of the same hues.
