Carnegie

Hattie Carnegie (Henrietta Kanengeiser) was born in Vienna in 1886, immigrating to America in the early 1900's. Her career started in the garment industry, she opened several shops in New York selling high-end dresses and millinery, thereby creating Hattie Carnegie Inc. in 1918. As with many of the other designers she created lines of jewellery to compliment her dresses. Due to the popularity of her designs, they began to mass-produce pieces selling them through exclusive department stores. Among the clientele to her boutiques were prominent socialites and movies stars such as Joan Crawford. Her jewellery was expensive at the time and remains so, it is highly collectible today.
