Miriam Haskell Egyptian Revival parure has necklace, matching bracelet, and two pairs of earrings featuring semiprecious scarabs in the iconic Haskell fancy filigree settings. All pieces are signed. The bracelet measures 8 inches long; the necklaces measures 24 inches long; and the clip back scarab earrings are 2 inches in length. The other set of matching earrings that feature the King Tut motif measure 1 1/2 inches in length and are for pierced ears. Notice that the necklace also features the King Tut motif on links separating the scarabs. This is a rarely seen parure from the extremely popular Egyptian Revival line that Haskell featured for 5 years during the 1970's. The head designer at the time was Larry Vrba who at one time in his career also worked for Castlecliff. He now designs and makes his own line of jewelry. In ancient Egypt, the scarab hieroglyph, Kheper, refers variously to the ideas of existence, manifestation, development, growth, and effectiveness; because it had so many meanings, the scarab was a favourite form used for amulets in all periods of Egyptian history.
