1952- The Carnelia Necklace

This is one of my favorite necklaces from the 50s. It’s from the Carnelia series of 1952, and you can find the long pendant necklace and the matching earrings in silver on P.153 of the book.

There is also a rather iconic Monet ad from this time of a small black poodle (also in the book) wearing all of his jewelry at once! One of the earrings he wears are the Carnelia earrings. Now if I could only find the bracelet!!!!!!!!!!!
