"Hattie Carnegie" in script with © on oval cartouche

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 necklace. I’ve included two examples from my own jewelry box (which are not for sale), for illustration purposes. You may have better ideas. 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. What an exceptional and versatile piece!
