Hi - I bought this necklace from Poshmark. She *thinks* it may be missing two pearl at the bottom and I'd say 90% of the pearls have at least a few dots or scratches.. Faux pearls Seed pearls Rhinestones Approximately 2" wide x 1.75" tall, almost .5" high at its tallest. 27" long, including the pendant.
Not much. The seller says she's experienced in costume jewelry and that her dealer authenticated it.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a lovely necklace. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis. The necklace is a typical piece of fashion jewellery also known as bijouterie from the 1940s. The materials used and the design of the necklace is typical of this type of jewellery where the materials were un-expensive as the jewellery was meant to be replaced often in order to match the current fashion trends. Your necklace may have been made by Miriam Haskell however without any marks or stamps it is hard to determine. The earlier pieces were unmarked as you wrote however the condition of the piece and the uncertainty of it being an authentic Miriam Haskell piece leaves the appraisal in the lower scale.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online vintage clothes and accessories auction, where I believe the necklace has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the necklace. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
