A very nice piece of old vintage Hattie Carnegie costume jewelry signed "HC". This unique item is very elaborately designed and crafted being made up of a fine gold tone metal foundation which forms stems, vines, leaves, and flowers. The stems have pave set white rhinestones running along the edge and the leaves and flowers are also accented by pave set white rhinestones. The tips of some vines are accented by white marquise cut gems and the center of the leaves are covered with green enameling. The flowers are accented by an amazing display of pink enamel which has shades of iridescent blue and green tones that look so beautiful. The center of the middle flower is accented by small white baguette cuts and the base of the stem has a row of white baguette accents as well. The back of this item has a long pin and locking "C" clasp as well as the signature "HC" which is set within a diamond hallmark. This piece measures 4 1/4" long by 2 3/8" wide and was crafted some time in the early to mid 1940s. It is in fantastic condition and looks so nice all these years later.
