|In 1936 Daisy Fellowes, heiress to the Singer sewing machine fortune, was terribly upset that financial reversals brought about by the Great Depression had forced her to sell her yacht.|
She treated herself to a little something from Cartier. She bought a necklace mounted with a fringe of emerald, sapphire, and ruby beads; engraved ruby and sapphire leaves; and 13 briolette-shaped sapphires. Daisy's necklace became known as the Tutti Frutti and she set off the craze for Art Deco jewels.
