Term Definition

Miriam Haskell, in collaboration with Frank Hess, created some of the most original jewellery ever made, creating organic floral and abstract designs. She started her career in 1924 and was influenced by her friend Coco Chanel. In 1926 she opened her first boutique “Le Bijou De L'Heure” In New York's McAlpin Hotel, where she created stylish and lavish jewels for the society ladies of the day, including the Duchess of Windsor and Joan Crawford. Her pieces were all hand made with an extremely high attention to detail, which made them expensive at the time and extremely collectible now.
