"This is the first book to tell the story of Miriam Haskell the person and Miriam Haskell the prestigious house of costume jewellery. [Haskell's] genius lay not in design itself so much as in her unerring ability to pick the right projects from those put to her by her own in-house team of excellent designers, in particular Frank Hess and Robert E. Clark. It is no coincidence that it was sold only in the finest outlets on both sides of the Atlantic and that it appealed to movie stars and to leaders of fasion alike. This was no ordinary costumer jewellery, and it is little wonder that classic pieces command high prices and are eagerly sought after and collected today." Includes more than 200 examples, thorough text material, a chronology and index of names.
