This is an original Miriam Haskell necklace from the 1960's go go days. The long set of oversized beads are made of Lucite and measure 20" long. They are cut like crystals and reflect light from every source of light. The necklace has a signed Miriam Haskell clasp signed in oval on the back. It is box and tongue style closure. It shows corrosion to the gold plated finish but fully intact. The top of the clasp has a small crystal bead surrounded by a row of tiny crystals. The pendant is a large cut lucite clear elongated drop that measures 3" long. It is capped by gold plated decorative filagree scrolling mount and a gold plated loop which attaches to the large strand of beads. The condition of this piece is varied. All of the Lucite is in great condition. The filigree work with the fake Russian gold plate metal is slightly imperfect. The necklace is cool and very wearable but not for a perfectionist.
This comes from the estate of a very well know jewelry collector.
