If this gorgeous necklace reminds you of those by Miriam Haskell, it's because it was made by Robert DeMario who worked for Haskell in the 1940s. He started designing his own jewelry in 1945 and used distinctive clusters of glass beads, pearls and rhinestones on gilt filigree. Like Haskell, DeMario's jewelry presented superior intricate craftsmanship and design.

This 1950s DeMario necklace is a double strand of gilded metal swirling melon ball beads. The two strands vary in bead size...the larger strand beads are about 10mm wide....the inner strand beads are about 8mm wide.

But it's the clasp that seals the deal. It comes together with two floral sides, each hand-wired on filigree with gilded beads, prong set crystal rhinestones, and a melon ball topping. The filigree back has the signature cartouche...ROBERT DEMARIO N.Y.C.

The necklace measures 15 1/2 inches around by 1 inch wide at the clasp. You can wear the clasp to the back or to the front where everyone can admire it. The necklace has a nicely aged patina with no notable distractions. It's overall in excellent vintage condition.

Robert DeMario Jewelry closed circa 1965. Since the company’s production was limited and not made in large quantities, DeMario jewelry today is highly collectible. In fact, it's unlikely to see two pieces that are the same because of the intricate hand work of each design.
