These milk glass earrings by Hattie Carnegie are substantial and incredibly well-made. They feature prong-set, opaque-white-glass stones wrapped in gold wire and accented with diamanté. From the 1950s, these ear clips feature the same gorgeous gold-wire construction this designer used with a variety of stones to create earrings, necklaces, brooches, and bracelets. I was proud to see this pair worn on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. Although these earrings are no longer available, you may like another pair in milk glass (also worn on the runway) – scroll down to see them.
- Vintage Earrings, 1940s Jewelry, 1950s Jewelry, Vintage Miriam Haskell JewelryThese milk glass earrings with beads and disks, rondelles, and gold-tone findings have a real Machine Age-look and associated movement. However, the use of French ear clips dates them to the late-1940s, and the white beads may take them into the 1950s, when white jewelry was extremely popular. I still consider this pair to be Art Deco in style, and I’ve seen the same motif used by this designer (Frank Hess) on earlier Miriam Haskell pieces. Whenever they were made, these ear clips are lots of fun! I saw them in an entirely new, bright, and glamorous light when they were chosen to walk the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. See them on the model who looked stunning in a bridal jumpsuit with skirt. You don't have to be a bride to add glamour to an ensemble with these fabulous earrings!USD$345.00
