NEW YORK – As the world celebrates the International Day of Democracy on 15 September, we take a look at jewels formerly from the collections of President and Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower and their beloved daughter-in-law Barbara Eisenhower Foltz. When the Eisenhower Presidency began in 1953, it was the first time an administration was fully televised, and First Lady Mamie Doud Eisenhower proudly welcomed the nation into her home. The following jewels, part of the 24-25 September Important Jewels sale in New York, serve as a time capsule into a specific period of American history.
