Clusters of faux pearls float about a large, faceted blue glass bead in these wonderful '40s-'50s vintage short flatback, brass tone clip earrings from Miriam Haskell. The company's propensity for pearls is well documented -- so much so that the Haskell name is nearly synonymous with premium faux pearl jewelry.
The earrings presented with Haskell's short flat back clips feature individually cup / stem set faux pearls arranged in cluster style around a large, wired, faceted blue glass bead. Fancy, reverse cover plate is wired to cluster base. Finish is in brass tone with appropriate patina. Clips are short flatback style, in use at Haskell from circa late '40s-'50s.
The earrings measure about 1 inch across with a generous 3/4 inch profile or dome. Larger faux pearls are approximately 5 millimeters; blue glass beads, about 14 millimeters. Weight of the earrings pair is about 20 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original, correct and intact. Faux pearls retain nacre and luster. Blue glass beads free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Very fine light facet feathering discernible under magnification. All pearls appear secure within settings. Wiring appears secure. Brass tone has expected patina. Clips strong and secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Age commensurate light wear. Excellent vintage.
Each original earring clip is signed: "MIRIAM HASKELL". Circa 1940s-1950s.
Clusters with crystals. Another hit from Haskell. At Cody's.
