Rich autumn colors accent the warm gold tone in this beautiful Hattie Carnegie demi-parure. The necklace is very long, and can be worn doubled (or even tripled, as a choker). The clip earrings are really elaborate, true chandeliers. The beads appear to be thermoset plastic, and are set in gold tone metal. A substantial, very wearable set by one of the great jewelry makers.
Hattie Carnegie began creating jewelry to complement her fashions just before World War II. Her company operated until the late 1970's making high quality jewelry that is very sought-after by collectors.
