Miriam Haskell Jewelry is not only beautiful, classic, stylish and distinctive it is one of the most recognizable designer styles found though out the decades since the 1920's. These are just a few of the reasons her jewelry has retained its value and remained so collectible. She did not even sign her jewelry until around 1947 when after WWII, copies of her work had became prevalent, forcing the change to signed pieces. Great designers; Robert Clark, Peter Raines, Larry Vrba and Millie Petronzio have though out those years managed to carry on the classic style first developed by Frank Hess with Ms. Haskell, while adding their own subtle and not so subtle touches. If it is not obvious, we are fans!
Pictures speak volumes to our feeble attempts at descriptions, so please feast your eyes there first and here second. The necklace is 24 inches long and consists of round and oblong rhinestone 'balls', plenty of the finest European hand crafted pink Pate de Verre glass in varies sizes and shapes, multi-faceted crystals in varies sizes, pale pink Venetian crystal blossoms and luscious creamy glass pearls. All the rhinestones and rose montee are sparkling, none are dead, dull or missing. The signed gilded filigree box clasp is decorated with pink Pate de Verre elements surrounded by tiny multi-faceted crystals to form the flower decoration atop the clasp. On to the magnificent 4 inch pendant drop, it is truly best described in pictures!! W O W! We will attempt a brief description here; layers and layers of gilded brass ivy covered with rhinestone rose montee, surround a huge central 6 petal 2-inch diameter flower. Each petal of the flower is covered with small pink Venetian glass elements which have been threaded on to the filigree below to form the petals with a prong set rhinestone and rose montee center! There are other small 'flowers and buds' that show themselves in and among the layers too. The French clip back earrings are signed, Miriam Haskell, on the base pads. Pink Pate de Verre, multi-faceted crystal, rhinestone rhondel and delicate pink Venetian trumpet flowers drip and dangle for a gorgeous 2 3/8 inches to form these magnificent earrings. These pieces display desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish, no verdigris or corrosion are detected and under close or magnified inspection some light desirable peppering in the original rhinestones may be observed, nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. A one of a kind offering for the collector and lover of the truly special couture! (BJ023-S500)
