Miriam Haskell's secret potion of "Essence d' orient", multiple immersions in a combination of cellulose, fish scales, and other resins gave Miriam Haskell's baroque pearls a superlative lustrous finish unparalleled by her competitors in the costume jewelry world.
This classic single strand designer Haskell baroque pearl necklace displays that famous sheen beautifully.
The pearls in this vintage necklace are a chunky 10mm each, creamy, some call it "champagne" and so lustrous they seem to have a metallic cast to them. They are separated by gilt bead spacers with no verdi gras.
Necklace measures 17" long, including the Haskell extension style pearl necklace clasp, which boasts a 6 pearl wired strand ending in a tiny pearl wired floret hook clasp. It is signed Miriam Haskell at the back of the hook clasp.
I can't stop raving about the beautiful condition of these pearls. It would make such a wonderful complement to any Haskell bracelet in faux pearls that you may own, perhaps you will find one from this recent Haskell collection we have recently listed in our shop.
