Faux pearls have always been the signature of Miriam Haskell. Her use of glass beads bathed in that "secret" formula have divided and conquered the many houses who did imitation pearls. For decades Haskell's pearls remained at the top of the list.

Presented is a double strand of smooth glass faux pearls spaced with faceted gold tone metal beads. The push in box type clasp adds that touch of sparkle with four gorgeous, rarely seen, half moon or demi lune rhinestones. Fluted goldtone blossom petals spike upwards enveloping a single wired baroque faux pearl.

The choker style necklace is an approximate 13 3/4 inches. It may possibly fit to 14 inches, albeit snugly. Simulated pearls are about 7 millimeters. Square clasp is approximately 7/8 inch across with a 3/4 inch profile or height. Weight of the necklace is about 70 grams.

Condition of the the necklace is very good vintage. All components intact. All faux pearls in necklace strands retain nacre and luster. There are no chips, nicks, cracks, peeling or discoloration to the glass faux pearls in the two strands. The baroque faux pearl in the clasp has a 1/16 inch x 1/8 inch sliver of missing nacre on the side near one of the flower blossom petals, perhaps from rubbing the metal over the years. The goldtone metal in the clasp has a darker brasstone patina. There is contact wear to the goldtone metal finish on reverse of clasp, revealing the silvertone base metal beneath. Some of the goldtone metal spacer beads also have substantial patina, creating a darker finish. All of the pearls in the necklace strands retain their nacre with that creamy, lustrous finish so appreciated in Haskell's pearls. Rhinestones remain incredibly brilliant, especially considering their age. Push in clasp strong and secure. Strands appear secure. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Age commensurate wear only. Very good vintage.

Reverse of clasp is signed within an oval cartouche with "MIRIAM HASKELL". Circa 1950s.

Double it up with Haskell. Pearls like no other. At Cody's.
