Deep red glass beads, Russian-gold filigree beads and end caps, rhinestone rondelles, and a box clasp with rose montées comprise this opera-length 1950s classic by Miriam Haskell. This piece never goes out of style!
Faceted spring-green glass beads with chrome links, balls and end caps make this 1920s-1930s Art Deco necklace a delightful accessory for any season. This necklace, which is light weight and has a spring-ring clasp, is probably European in origin. I have a great pair of dangling earrings in the same shade and style -- scroll down to see them.
Molded sugar-loaf lapis glass stones set in silver-tone frames alternate with silver-tone triangular plaques in this 1920s Art Deco necklace. With its pyramid motif, this piece is a great example of the period's fascination with all things Egyptian. This necklace, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, was in my personal collection.

An alternative to the chicklet, these square-cut glass emeralds are encased in silver-tone metal and are slightly graduated in size. This 1920s-1930s Art Deco choker features a decorative hidden tongue-in-groove clasp. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the necklace length (14 1/2") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. It looks great with my other emerald Art Deco pieces — scroll down to take a look.
This blue and green glass bead 1950s necklace is another example of Hattie Carnegie's extraordinary flare with beads. Here most beads are bi-color. The shapes and sizes vary, and the predominant colors are interspersed with white and clear beads and clear crystal spacers. This necklace has substantial weight and an adjustable hook-and-tail clasp.
