This 1950s milk-glass-beaded triple-row wrap bracelet has round faux-mother-of-pearl plagues on each end decorated with brass filigree and flowers of tiny milk glass beads and diamanté. This lovely wire bracelet is probably from Japan, which produced a lot of very nice costume jewelry for export to the U.S. in the 1950s. This bracelet coordinates well with other milk-glass pieces from the same decade — scroll down to see them.

    Milk Glass Bead, Diamanté & Gold Earrings by Miriam Haskell

    , ,
    These Miriam Haskell earrings with milk-glass 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 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!

    Milk Glass Bead & Seashell 1970s Long Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    ,
    This 1970s necklace of milk glass beads and white sea shells was made later than my usual 1920-1960 scope, but this piece is so whimsical that I bought it anyway. This necklace can be worn long, doubled or even tripled! It closes with a slide clasp. This necklace works well with some of my other milk glass pieces, including a pair of earrings by Miriam Haskell — scroll down to see them.

    Milk Glass Earrings with Gold Wire & Diamanté by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    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.
