Emerald, Pearl & Sapphire 1950s Brooch by Miriam Haskell
2 3/8" diameter
Excellent (added color to the center pearl is caused by camera reflection)
1950s (based on filigree back with solid center)
"MIRIAM HASKELL" in raised letters on oval cartouche

This Miriam Haskell pin is a real knockout! It features a large, pale-grey faux pearl in the center, surrounded by a ring of faceted, round sapphire-glass stones set in silver-tone metal. Ten rays emanate from there, each with a sapphire-glass bead; a ribbed, egg-shaped emerald-glass stone; and tiny faux pearl accents. The construction is superb: a scallop-edged, round filigree plaque supports the center and holds the pin with a roll-over safety clasp. Each ray is supported by its own round filigree plaque topped with a triangular frame. Because of the complexity of the brooch’s design, I suggest wearing simple pearl earrings and/or a pearl bracelet. After all, the brooch should be the star of the show!
