CAROLEE JEWELRY
circa 1980 to present
by Carol Friedlander

One of their brochures says, "All Carolee pins feature hand set genuine crystals. Each piece is hand polished and comes with a lifetime warranty".
CAROLEE jewelry has been made for over 40 years, and they are best known for their Limited Edition pieces, some of which can be seen below, as well as their bridal collection. Their jewelry is sold in many major department stores. "To celebrate Spring, I have designed these four Limited Edition pins for 2004. Each hand set crystal pin bears the date and my stamp of authenticity. Only 1,000 pieces of each pin will be produced. Carolee." Included in the 2004 collection were a dragonfly, orchid, floral and butterfly brooch. Limited editions were also made in other years.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
