Here is a fabulous necklace by legendary costume designer Miriam Haskell featuring authentic jade stone and mother of pearl. This wonderful tassel necklace features a beautiful mesh chain which I believe is done in her Russian gilt finish.
The tassel by itself measures 4.5 inches long. The jade beads measure 10mm each and the little mother of pearl beads measure about 3mm each. The jade ring measures approximately 7/8 inch around. The mesh area or chain measures approximately 9 inches long.
Overall condition is very good with just a couple of minor issues. There is some oxidation or discoloring on the mesh chain (see pic 7). Also the lacy end-caps have gaped a little over the years (see pics 8 & 9). One other sidenote, the clasp works but is unusual. It is a flattened clasp that works with the jump ring. You need to insert the jump ring then pull or tug a little on the chain in order to have the mechanism close. This necklace fits easily over my head so you don't have to fiddle with the closure if you don't want to.
Thank you for looking!
