I'm excited to announce a new promotion with the Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection, featuring pins by the renowned jewelry designer Henry Schreiner. As Carole writes below, these pins are a Mrs. O favorite. You'll find them at a higher price point, reflective of their rare and special nature. The collection is available through the Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection here for a limited time. Enjoy!

A bit of insight from Carole Tanenbaum:

"The Schreiner jewelry company was established in 1939 but it was not until 1951 when his daughter and son-in-law joined the company that Schreiner Jewelry experienced widespread recognition. As a team, they created jewelry for such fashion houses as Adele Simpson, Norman Norell, and Christian Dior. Celebrities such as Ava Gardner, Joan Crawford and Audrey Hepburn wore his jewelry regularly. Today Michelle Obama has been spotted wearing vintage Schreiner pieces for many public appearances. The company never mass produced, all work was hand fastened. Schreiner used gun-metal, bronze and gold plating to illuminate his custom made German stones. He is known for his inverted set or 'upside down' stone placements, fancy fixtures, and original colour combinations.  He also used unfoiled stones in his creations, so that the color of the material could be seen through the piece of jewelry."
