Alice Caviness, a fashion model who became a clothing designer, ventured into the Vintage costume jewelry business in 1945, just after the end of World War II.
She was an impeccable dresser and had a definite flair for imaginative clothing and jewelry. She founded Caviness Jewelry with her husband, Jules Junquerra and they made some pieces, commissioned others and also imported some of the jewelry from Europe. These became an important part of the line, which also included costume jewelry made of rhinestone and beads.
Alice Caviness was extremely involved in the design, production and selection of the jewelry pieces that comprised Caviness Jewelry.
Caviness costume jewelry is unusual and also very distinctive, as was Alice Caviness. She was a charming individual and very particular dresser, described as having a lilting southern drawl, and American and Europeans alike were quite taken with her.
Caviness vintage costume jewelry was typically constructed of complex, layered materials. These materials included rhinestones and all sizes and colors, stones, beads and hand carved ivory. Many pieces had very striking color combinations. Most of the pieces throughout the years required intricate handwork, setting stones or beads, for example. This is a Gorgeous and Rare example of her work in Excellent Condition!
