7" x 5/8" (some flexibility in length, as the bracelet is wired)
Very good – a bit of glue(?) residue on tiny flowers, only visible on very close inspection
This 1950s milk-glass-beaded triple-row wrap bracelet has round faux-mother-of-pearl plagues on each end decorated with brass filigree and flowers of tiny milk glass beads and diamanté. This lovely wire bracelet is probably from Japan, which produced a lot of very nice costume jewelry for export to the U.S. in the 1950s. This bracelet coordinates well with other milk-glass pieces from the same decade — scroll down to see them.
These 1960s milk glass earrings by Miriam Haskell have a scored drop topped by a round white bead surrounded by smaller white beads, a typical trait of this maker. These earrings have adjustable screw-backs (the combination screw and lever). My Milk Glass Bead Bow Brooch and Milk Glass & Seashell Necklace, both also by Haskell, look great with these earrings.

These substantial milk glass, diamanté and gold wire 1950s earrings by Hattie Carnegie look like flowers. Opaque white glass stones are prong set, wired in place and accented with clear rhinestones. The findings are gold plated; the earrings are clip-backs. Carnegie had several designs with the same gold-wire construction. Scroll down to see a bracelet to wear with these earrings.
Two layers of milk glass beads sitting on silver metal filigree form a simple bow in this charming 1950s brooch by Miriam Haskell. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. You can wear this brooch with some of my other milk glass pieces, including earrings by Miriam Haskell — scroll down to see them.
These Miriam Haskell earrings with milk glass beads and disks, rhinestone rondelles, and gold-tone findings have a real Machine Age look and associated movement. However, the French clips date them to the late 1940s. I still consider these earrings to be Art Deco in style, and I've seen the same motif used by this designer (Frank Hess) on earlier pieces. Whatever the style, these ear clips are lots of fun! Scroll down to see some coordinating pieces in milk glass.
This 1970s necklace of milk glass beads and white sea shells was made later than my usual 1920-1960 scope, but this piece is so whimsical that I bought it anyway. This necklace can be worn long, doubled or even tripled! It closes with a slide clasp. This piece works well with some of my other milk glass pieces, including a pair of earrings by Miriam Haskell — scroll down to see them.
Diamanté set in two rows of sterling silver decorative links form this delicate and versatile 1920s Art Deco bracelet. It closes with a tongue-in-groove clasp with safety chain. Please note that the photos suggest a slight yellowing of stones, which is not visible to the naked eye.
This sterling silver and diamanté 1940s bracelet by Eisenberg features large oval and small round clear rhinestones, a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp and a safety chain. This substantial and well-articulated piece epitomizes the high-quality of its maker and the glamor of the period. Although some of the stones are yellowing a bit, this piece is still beautiful and very wearable. This bracelet was advertised in the May 15, 1947 issue of Vogue.
A trio of layered and textured silver-tone leaves forms each section of this wide 1950s bracelet by Elsa Schiaparelli. Leaves were one of her favorite motifs, and she uses them here to create an unusual statement piece. Bold bracelets were one of this maker's trademarks. This piece has a fold-over clasp and safety chain. If you like this design, scroll down to see a brooch and earrings set by the same maker but with a different finish.
Gilded sterling silver links with corded wire spirals hold collet-set faux aquamarines in this fabulous Art Deco bracelet by Fahrner. It is an excellent example of the type of filigree the maker is known for. This bracelet has a hidden tongue-in-grove clasp. I have a sterling Fahrner necklace that looks lovely with this bracelet – scroll down to see it.
