Hattie Carnegie Jewelry

About Hattie Carnegie Jewelry

This selection of Hattie Carnegie jewelry from the 1950s features bold and colorful necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and earrings. Instead of producing fabulous fakes – imitations of fine jewelry – which were popular in the 1950s, the fashion house’s designs and materials were innovative and distinctive. The beaded jewelry is particularly exceptional. Some pieces were designed in-house under Carnegie’s direction. Others were commissioned by various costume jewelry manufacturers. In partnership with Rose Roth, Carnegie opened her first shop in New York City in 1909. Ten years later, she bought out Rose and renamed the company Hattie Carnegie, Inc. They started marketing costume jewelry to accessorize their fashions in 1939.
