The twisted gold chain on this Miriam Haskell necklace has a spring ring and a hang tag that helps date the piece to circa: 1950s. The lovely and sentimental heart pendant is decorated with a small heart and faux pearl and a cascading sweep of tiny faux pearls and brass leaves. The back is also marked. A classic Haskell piece in good vintage condition. The chain is 21" and the heart measures 1.5" x 1.25".

Miriam Haskell founded her own company in 1924 in New York City, retired in 1950 and the company continued under her brother and several other owners until it was sold in 1990. Best known for her pearls of all shapes and colors, her imagination and innovative design utilized interesting beads and wonderful rhinestones. Frank Hess was the chief designer and a skilled artisian for Haskell even after her retirement. Larry Vrba became Chief Designer in the 1970s. Always innovative, Haskell jewelry is highly sought after by collectors and considered pieces of art.

Russian Gold Plating: Exclusive to Haskell, each part went through six to seven preparatory steps and then a special dipping process, which created the Russian gold look. The dipping solution contained 24-karat gold, among other (secret) ingredients.
