Vintage 1950s Miriam Haskell Brooch
Miriam Haskell opened her jewelry boutique in New York City in 1924 and instantly became known around the world for her selection of materials, designs and craftsmanship. Joan Crawford, Lucille Ball, and Gloria Vanderbilt were huge fans of Mariam Haskell jewelry. The Duchess of Windsor, one of the worlds great jewelry collectors owned a large collection of Haskell jewelry and was photographed often wearing pieces from Mariam Haskell’s latest designs.
This magnificent signed Mariam Haskell necklace is extraordinary in beauty and design. Every piece of Miriam Haskell jewelry was made by hand. Each bead, each crystal, each pearl was picked up by hand, hand-wired to an intricate brass filigree backing, and ultimately backed to a second filigree concealing any trace of construction.
The craftsmanship of Mariam Haskell jewelry can simply not be duplicated today! Approx. 18”L Brooch 2 in.
