Emerald Melon Bead Earrings by Miriam Haskell

Emerald Melon Bead Earrings by Miriam Haskell


Additional information


Miriam Haskell


1" diameter




Late-1940s (based on short flatback clip with imprinted signature)


"MIRIAM HASKELL" on ear clips


Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.82

These emerald costume earrings by Miriam Haskell feature a melon-shaped glass bead capped with a tiny emerald-glass stone covered by four Russian-gold prongs. This centerpiece is encircled by smaller melon beads with twisted Russian-gold spacers. These components are wired together by hand and attached to a gold-tone metal filigree foundation. The short, flat-back ear clips date this Frank Hess creation to the late 1940s. The color is divine, the quality is exceptional, and the design is timeless. These versatile earrings will take you anywhere in style!
