Miriam Haskell, born 1899 in Tell City, Indiana, began designing jewelry about 1924.
In 1926 she opened her own shop, 'Le Bijou de l'Heure' in New York City in the McAlpin Hotel, eventually moving to Fifth Avenue with Boutiques at SAKS and other stores here and abroad.
Her innovative, and now legendary, pieces were hand made and sought after by many famous patrons of the time.
The first signature stamp appeared on her jewelry about 1947 or 1948, in the shape of a horseshoe rainbow.
In the 1950's the oval stamp was designed.
To the trained eye, her vintage designs are easily recognized and widely sought after.
Ms. Haskell was known for using all kinds of medium, combining unlikely elements. She loved and made intricate wired designs, one of the trademarks of her famous jewelry.
Some of the famous people who bought and wore her unique jewelry were Lucille Ball, Gloria Vanderbilt and Joan Crawford.

Her jewelry is classic, timeless and most certainly interesting; copied by many.

Her main collaborator and designer was Frank Hess; Others were Larry Vrba & Robert Clark.

In 1952 Ms. Haskell turned over the management of the company to her younger brother, Joseph Haskell. The company has changed hands but is still producing other types of jewelry under the Haskell name.

Ms. Haskell died in 1981 leaving us her legacy of lovely jewelry as a famous American jewelry designer.
