1950s Jewelry

This authentic 1950s jewelry features amazing art glass, decorative beads, imaginative color combinations, and textured metals. Single- and multi-strand necklaces, cluster earrings, pendant earrings, brooches, bracelets, and sets are included. You will find fabulous fakes – imitations of large-scale fine jewelry – as well as graceful and classic tailored pieces. Gold-tone was more popular than silver-tone in this decade, when clothes that emphasized the female figure were in vogue. Another significant characteristic of the 1950s, other than the ubiquitous simple strand of pearls, was the preference for all accessories – jewels, gloves, handbags, shoes, and hats – to be color coordinated.

    Turquoise, Diamanté & Gold Leaf 1950s Brooch by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    Tiny turquoise glass beads decorate the flower layer on this graceful and elegant 1950s brooch by Hattie Carnegie. The bottom layer is a furled leaf made from openwork, gold-tone metal. Both layers are pavé-embellished. The detail is superb, especially on the back, as one would expect from this maker. This piece closes with a roll-over safety clasp.
