Exquisite in design and craftsmanship, Mardi Gras jewelry, offered as favors by krewe members, are cherished gifts, proudly worn year after year by the lucky recipients. As is everything related to Mardi Gras, these specially designed and crafted keepsakes are unique to the celebration and reveal the intricate detail observed in carrying out the annual tradition. Mardi Gras crowns, scepters, and mantles, designed exclusively for each krewe, dazzle with brilliant rhinestones and are truly fit for a king. In the last of his series, Henri Schindler recounts the splendor of the old-line krewes during the golden age of carnival (1870-1930) and the jewelry associated with them.
