Hattie Carnegie was a fashion revolutionary truly ahead of her time. She was born Henrietta Kanengeiser in Austria-Hungary March 15, 1880. After immigrating to the U.S. in 1886 she anglicized her last name to Carnegie apparently in honor of Andrew Carnegie whom she greatly admired. She also began going by Hattie, a nickname she earned as a top milliner in New York City.
In 1939 Hattie Carnegie introduced costume jewelry to coordinate with her already well-known and loved clothing lines. Her jewelry encompassed many styles and today Hattie Carnegie pieces are much sought after by collectors.
High-quality rhinestones, enameling, design, and craftsmanship characterize all Hattie Carnegie jewelry. Many talented jewelry designers worked under the Hattie Carnegie name, including Kenneth Jay Lane, Norman Norell, and Nadine Effront. Hattie Carnegie passed away in 1956 just shy of her 70th birthday. This tiny, 4’10” woman left a mark on the fashion world that will not quickly be forgotten.
