    Baroque Pearl & Amethyst Bead 1970s Long Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    ,
    This Miriam Haskell pearl necklace is a beautiful example of this maker’s work. The long strand of faux cream baroque pearls and pearl bead spacers is interspersed with faceted amethyst glass beads. The pearls are textured and somewhat varying in size. Wear this piece 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 beautiful 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 lovely appearance of this piece.

    , ,
    A beautiful example of Machine Age design that you will love. This vintage black Bakelite necklace features six curved links set with diamanté that alternate with Bakelite links with roof-shaped (pointed) tops.

  • Chrome necklace & bracelet set w/glass links
    Machine Age chrome & glass necklace
    USD$995.00

    Chrome Necklace & Bracelet with Glass Links

    , , , ,
    This chrome necklace and matching bracelet with molded glass links is so unusual that its origin has been debated by the expert in European costume jewelry – Ginger Moro. Her book European Designer Jewelry describes the pieces as Belgian (where the Art Deco style was “a synthesis of French and German styles”). When I purchased the set, she told me that she had bought it in Brussels about 40 years ago from a dealer who also had sold her some Bengel jewelry. At that time, before the first Bengel book was published, no one knew about the firm. Since then, Moro and the dealer have decided that this set had to be by Bengel for three reasons: “nobody else was doing any chrome jewelry that sophisticated”; the dealer had bought it from the same source as other Bengel pieces; and they discovered that Bengel was working with glass links. I don’t think the maker matters. This Machine Age look is modern and striking! The color of the glass segments, which are pale pink in reality, is very difficult to capture in photographs. As Ginger said, the glass "melts into your skin". The necklace closes with a hook; the bracelet has a spring-ring clasp. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4") and check your neck size before purchasing this set.

    USD$475.00

    Chrysoprase & Crystal Chicklet Necklace

    , ,
    This chrysoprase green necklace has rectangular-shaped stones that alternate with square crystals. All are mounted on linked silver-tone frames, in the style of Art Deco chicklet necklaces. Although unmarked, the design and quality of this jewel make me think it was made in Germany. The faceting of the crystals is superb, and the mountings of the stones are highly-decorated. The silver-tone metal may be sterling, although the stone frames are unmarked. This gorgeous piece from my personal collection closes with an older-style spring-ring clasp.

  • Statement choker necklace with red, black, green & diamanté disks
    Front view of necklace w/faceted, colorful disks
    USD$245.00

    Chrysoprase, Onyx, & Ruby Disk Choker with Rondelles

    , ,
    This statement choker necklace features faceted, opaque chrysoprase-, onyx- and ruby-glass disks and rondelles. The components are strung on metal chain. The necklace closes with a screw-in clasp formed by two of the disks. Based on the construction of this piece, I think it is European in origin. As often happens with necklaces made like this one, the chain has stretched. I don’t recommend having a jeweler cut the excess – just keep it at the back. This multi-colored, versatile necklace can be worn with many Art Deco jewels, depending on the color you wish to emphasize — scroll down to see a selection. Or wear your real or faux diamond studs to complete the look.

    This chicklet necklace is a variation of the typical Art Deco style. Instead of square-cut stones, this one is fashioned from deep-citrine-glass and crystals in the shape of parallelograms.
