Nettie Rosenstein costume jewellery
Born in 1890 in Salzburg, Austria, Nettie Rosencrans became famous American fashion and jewellery designer. Her parents moved to Harlem, New York while she was a young child. There, Nettie married businessman Saul Rosenstein who ran a women’s underwear business (1913).
Soon, under the surname of her husband she and her sister began career in the fashion world. First, it was a hat business. In the early 1930s, Nettie founded a new company, and significantly expanded the family business. Her company manufactured clothes, linens, bags, perfumes and costume jewelry. As a result, the talented designer received the Neiman Marcus Fashion Award for her collection in 1938.
Meanwhile, the designer’s creations grew in price, reaching hundreds of dollars, crazy prices for those times! Also, in 1947, Nettie received another prestigious fashion award – Coty Award. Noteworthy, in 1953 the designer created a dress for the first US lady for the inauguration ceremony of the president.

Her long term business partner and Coty Award Winner, Sol L. Klein, continued to design and manufacture costume jewelry and accessories until 1975. He retired in 1975 and the Nettie Rosenstein brand ceased to exist. On March 13, 1980, after a long illness, Nettie Rosenstein died at the age of 90.

Undoubtedly, products of this brand are in high demand both among collectors and lovers of high-quality, complex designer jewelry.
