“Almost unheard of in today’s marketplace, Miriam Haskell’s creations are still made entirely by hand. The value of a Miriam Haskell piece was- and still is- a reflection of this workmanship and meticulous detail. Each bead, each crystal, each pearl is picked up by hand, hand-wired to an intricate brass filigree backing, and ultimately backed to a second filigree, concealing any trace of its construction. One piece may take as long as three days to create.”
MIRIAM HASKELL Pearl Flower Necklace
Every single style icon has at one time or another worn Miriam Haskell. In business since 1926, this jewellery line has been a favourite of Hollywood icons, society women, and even royalty. As one of the first female designers she, together with Coco Chanel, Hattie Carnegie and Schiaparelli, popularized costume jewellery, making it as covetable and chic as fine trinkets.

Hollywood legend Joan Crawford and Duchess of Windsor were among her biggest fans. Her designs were known for their beautiful elements inspired by nature, as well as themes borrowed from exotic cultures.
These elements are still the dominant theme behind the Miriam Haskell label. Always extremely feminine, these fine pieces are intricately crafted combinations in pearls, beads, and metals, usually featuring a leaf motif.
