I just love over-the-top jewelry. Early Trifari Alfred Philippe designs, Miriam Haskell jewelry, Eisenberg statement brooches, even Lea Stein's celluloid acetate pins. These are some of the best. BUT it is hard to surpass the Egyptian Revival Collection introduced by Hattie Carnegie in the early 1960s. These are hard to find and highly collectible. Bracelets and brooches with scarabs, earrings and rings with bright coral, lapis and turquoise colored enamels, and necklaces with that and a lot more. We have this outlandish snake necklace. What more can be said?
