New Obsession - Miriam Haskell New York

When in New York two weeks ago, I fell in love with a collection at Henri Bendels that I had never heard of.  Each piece in the Pearl Legacy collection by Miriam Haskell is absolutely breathtaking!  I could barely contain myself when sorting through all of the delicate, classy pieces.  The story behind each piece is even more exciting!  As the sales associate at Bendels said it, Miriam Haskell designed her pieces along with Coco Chanel.  She created classy pieces for the society women of her day.  Each piece is antique and a collectors item.  Sadly, Miriam passed away in the 80s but left all of her designs to the design team.  Now, each piece has been brought back for us to enjoy and remains such a classy statement.  As it is said, these pieces are "Tomorrow's Collectables Today."  You can read more about Miriam's facsinating design history here.  

Now, Let's see some of these gorgeous pieces!

My Mama surprised me with a Miriam Haskell piece for my birthday, and let me just say, I never want to take it off!  This is the breathtaking pearl strand I received.

Are you not in love with Miriam Haskell?  I'd love to know what you think.

  1. Thanks for introducing this to me! I love HB :) Not a huge fan of pearls, but I really like the third piece.

  2. Oh how gorgeous! I too adore pearls!! My hubby surprised me this autumn with a lovel strand of classic Chanel pearls with crystals! Barely a day passes when I don't wear them! Something about a lady in her best pearls....

    Love and Hugs,
    Mrs. Kindergarten...aka...Madame Spoiled

  3. The pearl is Sigma Kappa's jewel and is a special part of our ritual so they always make an appearance in my wardrobe!
