Jewel of the day: Miriam Haskell Fringe Necklace
This fringe necklace by Miriam Haskell is noted as being part of an eight-piece Charles James Capsule Collection. There was an exhibit of fashion designer James’s work at NY’s Metropolitan Museum of Art last year and he was the subject of the Museum’s famed Costume Institute Gala as well, leading to increased interest in his work.
These pieces are very much in the Haskell design mould but I’m not as sure they represent James as well. They are also a significant investment; this necklace, made with faux pearls and Swarovski crystal accepts, sells for USD$4,400 and is made to order.
