Miriam Haskell

Miriam Haskell opened her first boutique in 1926, "LE BIJOU DE L'HEURE" IN NEW YORK''s McALPIN HOTEL. Miriam Haskell would have tea with Coco Chanel while selecting the upcoming season beads at Madame Gripoix's-the finest source in Paris. While Miriam would bring her Young design artist, Frank Hess Chanel was alone. They would talk . Share ideas. Trade fashion celeb secrets. They were among a new class; independent women who began their careers designing jewelry to complement high fashion clothing in an exclusive boutique.Beginning the debut of Miriam Haskell  Jewelry  in the world of fashion, gorgeous,exqusiste, and breathtaking  have been just a few of the words uttered by her fans. What is it about the jewelry that has people  fascinated for so many decades, inspired generations of jewelry designers, and influenced jewelry fashion? It is beautify, artistry, originality, and craftsmanship.

Many jewelry artists and companies have designed their version of this jewelry, resulting in this inescapable statement, "Oh! That looks like a Haskell." 

Haskell jewelry is at the fore front in collecting world costume jewelry, causing collectors to scramble in many directions to find vintage pieces  and the prices keep spiraling up.
It is her seed pearls  from France , Italy,  Czechoslovakia, Germany and other exotic locations. Some beads were so tiny it's hard to imagine being able to manipulate them; others were so large they became the focal point of the piece, like the baroque  pearls and the filigree design.

Today her jewelry still lives in the collectors and it is still made today. Her style is classic and elegant, timeless.

Here is her vintage pieces and her work now. 

In style Forever!
