Vintage MIRIAM HASKELL Drippy Shell BIB Necklace 'n Earrings - Massive
Haskell's massive shell bib necklace set, looking as if it's come straight off a fashion runway or movie set; the earrings alone are 3 3/4 inches long! This get you noticed iconic jewelry is so Très Chic and for today 's fashion savvy. It's an all original Haskell, in excellent vintage condition and best yet the set is being offered for YOU to own! If history bears true this natural sea shell beauty would have been a favorite of Ms. Haskell herself, as it is said her favorites, were those of the natural elements; shell, coral etc.
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 retains, as well as, continues to increase in value and is also so very collectible. She did not even sign her jewelry until around 1947 / 48, 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 Ms. Haskell in collaboration with the infamous Frank Hess, while adding their own subtle and distinctive touches and flare. If it is not obvious, we are fans!
O.M.G.! These magnificent earrings measure 3 3/4 inches long by approximate 1 1/2 inches wide. Each earring is signed, MIRIAM HASKELL, on the earring's base pad, the earring's clip backs are stamped with PAT. 2400513 ( Ref. photo for more history ) and with these patented `oh so comfy' adjustable tension clip backs there is no worry with being too tight, too loose or uncomfortable; as you can adjust them easily and quickly to the perfect fit. The necklace measures 16 inches long at its shortest with a 4 inch extension for lengthening it to 20 inches and has a width of 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 inches when worn; so quite versatile. The shells that comprise this set are natural and vary in size, shape and shade as you will see on inspection of the photos, they have typical 'growth lines' which show natural bumps and shadings of color. The overall look of the necklace and earrings still remains white to off-white. On close inspection you will find rough edges and the occasional tiny natural hole and on one shell we noticed some old spider webbing ( it appears stable ) nothing in our opinion that detracts from its stunning appeal only that that affirms its age and authenticity. The silver gilding displays desirable age appropriate mellowing with light wear to the finish. The necklace has both a signed, Miriam Haskell, J-hook flower closure and a signed, Miriam Haskell, oval cartouche hang tag. This beautiful necklace has no missing shells that we can detect and lays ( un-kinked ) beautifully around the neck! A timeless addition to your accessories wardrobe to make a striking statement of Haskell vintage wearable art that's just at home with starched linen at the office, an ensemble out to lunch with the girls, or to a garden, beach or pool-side party! ENJOY! (F058)
