This long strand of faux grey baroque pearls is interspersed with faceted onyx glass beads, creating a striking necklace by Miriam Haskell. The variation in pearl and bead sizes and arrangement of the elements adds to the elegance of this piece. Wear it as a single long strand or doubled, depending on your neckline and the look you want to create. Although I usually prefer earlier vintage jewels, this lovely necklace was part of my personal collection because it is so elegant, timeless and versatile. The wear to the nacre of some pearls does not detract in any way from the stunning appearance of this piece.
