"MIRIAM HASKELL" under screw head and "HASKELL" on lever
Gordon & Pamfiloff, p. 83
Fit for a bride or everyday wear, these simple late-1950s earrings by Miriam Haskell feature a baroque pearl dangling from a pearl-studded Russian-gold-layered plaque. These earrings have adjustable screw-backs (the combination screw and lever).
These 1950s diamanté earrings are definitely "top-of-the-line Alice Caviness jewelry!" (Julia Carroll). They feature large octagonal clear rhinestones with clear crystal beads and diamanté-studded beads attached to a filigree disk. The position of the large stones and their faceting maximize the flash the earrings produce. They are so flashy though that they're difficult to photograph — the yellow that appears along the edges of some of the stones is only a reflection. The silver-tone settings have clip-backs, which, unfortunately, are too short to sustain the weight of the large bottom stone in each earring. A clever buyer could remove that stone and attach smaller stones and/or crystal beads to the filigree back, and make these earrings more wearable.
Another great pair of long Art Deco ruby pendant earrings! Here a molded ruby-glass bead resembling a flower is suspended from a silver-tone chain dotted with two small, faceted ruby-glass beads. A flatter bead in the same color glass is designed to adorn the earlobe. The original screw-backs on these earrings were converted to sterling silver posts by my expert jeweler. Lots of movement with these vibrant earrings, which are another great jewelry wardrobe staple.
Faceted peridot-glass stones capped with silver-tone metal filigree are the focal point in these delicate 1920s Art Deco earrings, with peridot-glass beads and silver-tone filigree disks accents. Peridot is a hard-to-find color. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings are long and lovely!
Faceted crystal beads dangle from filigree settings in these 1920s Art Deco earrings. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings coordinate well with any of my Art Deco necklaces with clear crystals only or with a combination of clear and colored crystals.
