This gorgeous green glass and rhinestone 1950s Miriam Haskell necklace has an ornate center plaque of brass flowers that hangs from a double row or emerald green, round beads. The lower portion of the bead strands has gold metal bead cups and tiny green glass and gold metal spacer beads, with plain green spacers, closer to the clasp. The hook and tail clasp has a beaded flower on each side, as well as on the metal hook itself, which is stamped Miriam Haskell. The center floral plaque is quite intricate, typical of Haskell’s designs, with: a brass petals, stamped brass leaves, various sizes of prong-set rhinestones, tiny faceted and smooth glass beads that dangle from loops and one pressed glass leaf-shaped bead, all wired together and attached to a filigree back. The flower-shaped filigree back has an oval plaque stamped Miriam Haskell at its center. A larger, teardrop-shaped glass bead dangles from the bottom of the floral plaque. A nice find for a collector of vintage Haskell jewelry (or a truly lovely piece to add to your jewelry collection, regardless of maker), this 50s Haskell necklace is in excellent condition, and quite spectacular!
