Miriam Haskell born 1899 and passed 1981 was a fashion designer of women’s costume jewelry that is highly collectible today. Designing costume jewelry between the 1930’s, 40’s,50’s and 60’s, Haskell integrated themes of the day into her designs. Located in Manhattan, Haskell decorated the dresses of Lucille Ball and many Hollywood stars.
Using glass she was able to replicate many gemstones, so that they were affordable to many. Haskell’s designs can be found in Museums worldwide.
