    Hattie Carnegie
    Founder (s): Hattie Carnegie 1919 - 1970s- Hattie Carnegie was another fashion designer that made their way in the costume jewelry business. Born in Vienna in 1886, she came to the United States with her parents when she was a child. In 1918 she opened her fashion house in New York City. It was called Hattie Carnegie, Inc. Like Schiaparelli, Chanel and others she began to market jewelry she thought would look good with the outfits she designed. Her costume jewelry was a favorite amongst the actresses and socialites of the day. It was sold in some of the department stores. Carnegie jewelry was/is expensive and very well made. Signature Designs: Oriental figurals, animals, rhinestone jewelry, and costume jewelry with Greek inspired motifs.
