CARNEGIE JEWELRY
  Carnegie costume jewelry was made from the 1939 to the 1979.
 

 
HATTIE CARNEGIE
was the creator of a fashion empire designing not only clothing and accessories but jewelry as well.
Carnegie costume jewelry was made from the 1940's to the 1970's. She often used specific themes in her jewelry lines, an example being her Oriental group, her beaded flowers and her poured glass pieces. Some of  her major designers were Norman Norell, Pauline Trigere, Peggy Moonan, Nandine Effront. Elegant and innovative, her jewelry remains both wearable and collectible today. Jewelry under this name was produced for several more years after her death in 1956.

Hattie Carnegie jewelry was made from about
1939-1979
 

 

This METROPOLITAN MUSEUM 17th or 18tj century seal looks so much like the Hattie Carnegie clips seen at the right. The seal is 3" by 1-3/8" and was donated by J. Pierpont Morgan in 1917. It is made of gold, platinum, diamonds and emeralds. What a wonderful thing! Carnegie must have been inspired by this piece.   Source


 

 

 

HC Hattie Carnegie royal king and queen fur clips with pearlized bellies and clear rhinestone accents in a lovely matte gold tone setting, circa 1945. Both have the earlier "HC" mark for Hattie Carnegie on the back. The king is 2-1/4" by 1-1/4", the queen 2-5/8" by 1-1/2". There is a piece of cream colored felt glued to the back of the queen, as you can see in the photo, but not on the king. These are such a great couple and can be worn together or one at a time. In very good vintage condition, the only flaw is a bit of very light scuffing on a pearl belly, hard to notice unless you are looking very closely. There is a similar piece, a seal, in fine jewelry in the Met Museum and on their web site HERE. Theirs is from the 17th-18th century and made of carat gold, platinum and diamonds. Ours of course is a piece of costume jewelry, but I bet the Met's seal was Carnegie's inspiration for her set.   View   #C39197

 UNSIGNED NOTE:  This unsigned mermaid brooch is often attributed to Hattie Carnegie, but so far, we have never seen a single signed version of it. This brooch WAS seen by us back in the late 1990s. It was being offered for sale at the Las Vegas Jewelry Show and sold by a Chinese company who made jewelry reproductions, including a few unsigned "Swarovski" looking brooches. There may be a signed version of this mermaid, and if so, we would like to see it. So far, I see no evidance that it is by Carnegie at all.   

HATTIE CARNEGIE clear rhinestone and glass pearl earrings set in gold tone star shapes. These are clip backs and in very good vintage condition with only slight graying in some of the clear rhinestones.   View   #c9779
