These large, floral 1960s Miriam Haskell vintage earrings are made of japanned black metal filigree in a flower shape, set with faceted black rhinestones. Each rhinestone is actually set into a glass bead cup, which has then been wired to the filigree base—a great example of the intricacy and fine workmanship of Haskell jewelry! The earrings date from circa 1960 to 1964, based on the style of clips used: an adjustable, screwback clip, designed to be more comfortable than a plain clip back. The earring backs have “Miriam Haskell” stamped into the metal underneath the clips (and a patent number stamped on the stem of the clips). They are in near excellent condition, with just a bit of wear to the surface of the japanned metal filigree, visible on the back side of the earrings, only. These mid-century Haskell earrings are quite wearable--being all black, they will match almost everything!
