Please note that I leave the cleaning of all vintage jewelry to the new owner. This amount will be added to your invoice. All the jewelry listed in my store is authentic vintage. Here is some information on the history of J Hattie Carnegie Jewelry that I copied from the internet. Hattie Carnegie emigrated from Austria to the United States as a small child and chose to change her name from Kanengeiser to Carnegie because it sounded "successful" (from industrialist Andrew Carnegie).
After various jobs as a teenager, she began her design career making hats, and eventually went on to become one of the most prominent and award-winning clothing designers of her time. Hattie also went on to produce her own perfume, jewelry, and other accessories.
Carnegie died in 1956, so the Hattie Carnegie jewelry that was designed before then, under her direction and requiring her approval, is most valued by collectors. These items, usually ranked highly in costume jewelry guides, are worth collecting, even if they are damaged or are missing rhinestones.
