Diamonds and Pearls

From the 1920's through the 1950's, beautiful (and just this side of gawdy ) costume jewelry was the thing to have... American jewelry designer, Miram Haskell, designed and created the best of it. 

Until the 1950's, Haskell didn't sign her pieces, making the earlier ones difficult to identify and authenticate, but they are highly sought after by collectors. 

Want to know if you've found a genuine Miriam Haskell?


  1. Where do you find this amazing stuff? I want to be like you someday.

  2. oh man, i love me so crazy costume jewelry. I used to wear mine in high school to proms and dances and year i had the fundraising even that i was volunteering at and i found this amazing vintage dress with fur on the cap sleeves (at a thrift store), just happened to fit in it...with my pin curls and costume jewelry...sigh..those were the days :)

    i'm so loving your blog!! thanks for sharing!
