Hattie Carnegie Jewelry by Georgiana McCall
Book DescriptionHattie Carnegie's life story surpasses that of Cinderella in that it is true. Born in 1886, she went from being a destitute Macy's messenger girl who owned three blouses and one skirt to controlling, at its high point, a ten-million-dollar empire. Her five companies included custom and ready-to-wear clothing, hats, perfume, and fabulous costume jewelry. For decades, her personal taste and fashion sense influenced the styles worn by countless American women. Today, Hattie Carnegie's jewelry is what has lasted, and this groundbreaking book showcases the full range of designs -- from glamorous rhinestone bracelets to exotic Oriental pins. Over 480 stunning color photos illustrate earrings, necklaces, sets, pins, and bracelets produced from the 1920s to the 1970s. Historical background, jewelry marks and signatures, current values, and collector tips are all included. Many have heard the name Hattie Carnegie, but until now her story has remained a silent secret. With this engaging book, collectors can finally enjoy a look at Hattie Carnegie's fascinating life as well as the beautiful jewelry that serves as her legacy.
