Elegance and refined styling in this vintage gold tone metal necklace (choker style), bracelet and matching clip earrings. Gold tone metal is laid in rows as glittering rhinestones adorn the top half and then the bottom half of the necklace.
All the stones are prong set and where the necklace twists over in the center, are three rows of clear rhinestones. Additional rhinestones are placed in intervals, across the center. Necklace measures 11 1/2" long and has an addition 3" adjustable chain. Closes with a J hook, it is almost 3/4" wide.
Matching bracelet repeats the same design as seen in the necklace. It measures 7 1/2" x almost 3/4". Fastens with a box spring clasp. Earrings are clip style and have the fold over motif seen in both the necklace and the bracelet. They measure 1 1/4" x 1/2".
A nice feature of this vintage Hattie Carnegie set is that it is larger. Sometimes vintage jewelry is so small, you need an extender on the necklace or the bracelet is too small. Generous sizing makes it very wearable for today's modern woman.
The condition is very good vintage. There is slight loss of the gold tome metal but overall, it looks as good as the day it was made. The earrings are hallmarked Carnegie in script. The necklace and bracelet are both hallmarked Hattie Carnegie in a cartouche. Perfect set for weddings, proms, collectors or any dressy occasion. Layaway is available.
Hattie Carnegie jewelry is of high quality and is considered very collectible. Her early jewelry was designed to complement her clothing line. Hattie jewelry is usually marked "Hattie Carnegie" or "Carnegie". A less frequently used mark is "HC" within a diamond, inside a semi-oval.
