Vintage 1950s Miriam Haskell Brooch
This 1950s rhinestone and seed pearl Mariam Haskell brooch is one of my all-time favorites. I’m always on the hunt for Haskell brooches and this one is extraordinary with beautiful Russian gold filigree that truly comes alive when worn. The patina is beautiful and the vintage triple chain matches the patina perfectly on this incredible 70 year old Mariam 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, Gloria Vanderbilt and the Duchess of Windsor were huge fans of Miriam Haskell jewelry and wore her pieces often.
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.
