Diamanté & Bead Flower 1950s Earrings by Miriam Haskell
1 1/8" diameter
Late-1940s (based on ear clip style) to early-1950s
"MIRIAM HASKELL" on round ear clip end
Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.82
These flower-shaped diamante earrings are much more beautiful than the photos convey. Six petals formed from tiny clear- and grey-glass bi-color beads wired together surround each large, faceted, round diamanté center. Designed by Frank Hess, this elegant pair features the style and workmanship that characterize Miriam Haskell pieces. The use of French ear clips dates these earrings to no earlier than the late-1940s, but I think the style is more 1950s. You can wear this pair for a special occasion or with everyday attire – they go with everything! They even sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019!
