Miriam Haskell jewelry typically features masses of seed pearls, rich filigree metalwork with an antique patina and a mixture of interesting stones. Her jewelry is always backed with an openwork filigree metal plate. It has a decidedly feminine look and is well made. Her vintage ads featuring Haskell jewelry are among the finest and most artistic of all ads. Frank Hess, Larry Vrbe and Millie Petronzio all designed for Haskell. Ultra feminine!
