American jewelry designer Alice Caviness started making jewelry right after the Second World War. Based in Long Island, New York, her company continued production after her death in 1983. Meanwhile, her jewelry is very diverse: necklaces, earrings, brooches, cameos, motifs of fruits and animal figurines. For the production of these exquisite decorations used high-quality materials, in particular crystals of unusual color. Labeled “Alice Caviness”, most of them are rare and very popular among collectors.
In fact, on the design and production of these masterpieces of costume jewellery worked Caviness herself and Millie Petronzio who worked for Caviness until 1982. However, at that time Millie Petronzio became head designer for Miriam Haskell. Alice Caviness jewelry is always distinctive and unusual.

Because it was a special line of jewelry with much fewer pieces produced comparing with Trifari, Coro and many other designers, Alice Caviness Costume Jewelry became difficult to find. Sold in high end boutiques, Alice Caviness jewelry is relatively scarce on the collectibles market and, accordingly, sought after by collectors. She created high quality and exquisite jewelry.
