Call them winter or chalk white, milk glass, seasonal summer or cruise beads, Miriam Haskell's '50s-'60s vintage bright white jewelry became a ubiquitous fashion statement of the era. The beads, as well as Haskell's famous faux pearls, were closely associated with her signature style. Embellished clasps and complementing extension tails of necklaces, integral components of the design, defined both form and function.

The two strand necklace presented, features a top row of uniformly sized opaque white glass beads spaced with tiny white seed beads. The bottom stand is comprised of larger, uniformly sized opaque white beads, separated again with tiny white seed beads. Strands are drawn up and secured into filigree end caps culminating in a signature Haskell wired bead embellished hook and oppositely, beaded extension tail.

The necklace's top row is adjustable to about 15 1/2 inches. Bottom strand drapes about 2 inches lower. Top row beads are approximately 8 millimeters; bottom row, about 10 millimeters. Weight of the necklace is 78 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components correct and intact. All white beads free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. No stains or discoloration. All are lustrous bright white. Filigree end caps, hook and connections are brass tone with heavy patina. No verdigris. Stands appear securely strung. (Please be mindful that this is the original stringing and may be age compromised.) Hook bead wiring appear secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

Hook is signed: "MIRIAM HASKELL". Circa 1950s.
