Vintage Miriam Haskell fashion—a fabulous blend of Natural Precious Coral branches from the Mediterranean with Art Glass beads. We think the piece was Art Deco, circa 1930 - 1940. The necklace is unusual in that the Coral is the real thing – most of Haskell's pieces used faux jewels to keep the price affordable.

Starting with her first shop in 1926, Miriam Haskell built a notable clientele including royalty in the form of Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, movie stars such as Joan Crawford and Lucille Ball, and society women including Gloria Vanderbilt. Haskell worked closely with her friend Coco Chanel, designing jewels for Chanel's couture collections.

Her pieces were successful because of their detail, quality, workmanship and price. Her European-trained craftsmen painstakingly built up complex multi-layer wired motifs like this necklace. This tight and careful wiring leaves little sign of the base beneath, one of the most distinctive features of Miriam Haskell jewelry.

Like many of her high fashion pieces, this necklace was designed to be worn high on the neck—please note the length.
