Emerald Melon Bead 1940s Earrings by Miriam Haskell
Late-1940s (based on short flatback clip with imprinted signature)
"MIRIAM HASKELL" on ear clips
Gordon & Pamfiloff, p.82
These Miriam Haskell earrings feature an emerald-glass melon bead capped with a tiny emerald glass stone covered by four Russian-gold prongs. This centerpiece is encircled by smaller emerald-glass 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, flatback 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!
