Hattie Carnegie Jewelry

This selection of Hattie Carnegie jewelry from the 1950s features bold and colorful necklaces, bracelets, brooches, earrings, and sets. Instead of producing fabulous fakes – imitations of fine jewelry – which were popular in the 1950s, Carnegie’s designs and materials were innovative and distinctive. Her beads are exceptional. Some pieces were designed in-house under her direction. Others were commissioned by notable designers such as Kenneth Jay Lane and Clare McCardell. Originally a milliner and then fashion designer, Carnegie opened her first shop in New York City in 1909. The company started marketing costume jewelry to accessorize her fashions in 1939.

    Emerald, Ruby, Pearl & Diamanté 1950s Brooch or Pair of Dress Clips by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,

    This Hattie Carnegie brooch is a bold and beautiful 1950s piece. It features large, cabochon-cut, pear-shaped emerald glass stones surrounded by round, cabochon-cut emerald and ruby glass stones, faux pearls, and diamanté. The setting is gold-tone metal. This piece can be worn as a brooch (at different angles, as shown) or as two separate dress clips. The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a gold chain. The photos also show how the piece comes apart. Because one of the large emerald stones has lost one of its claws, my expert jeweler strongly advises you to pull the clips apart by grasping the pearl edges. He cleaned and re-glued the affected stone, so it is now secure. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless-steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase. What an exceptional and versatile piece!

    Emerald, Sapphire & Golden Topaz 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,

    Layers of emerald, sapphire and golden topaz glass stones are combined with black metal flower petals in this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hattie Carnegie. Some of the stones appear teal in color, depending on the light. This set is a fine example of her imaginative color combinations, favored floral motifs, and complexity of design. What a knock-out! The settings are japanned metal, and the brooch has a roll-over safety clasp. When worn, the ear clips face each other and beautifully frame your face. The last photo shows how fantastic this brooch looks on a dress sash. Although the brooch has a ring designed to allow the piece to be worn as a pendant, my expert jeweler advises that the ring is not sturdy and cannot be replaced without damaging the back of the brooch. I don’t see this point as a problem – I’m just mentioning it in the interest of full disclosure.
