When people think of vintage costume, mens' accessories do not always come to mind. However, the integrity and history of vintage costume jewelry carries over into mens' as well and can make a great distinguished statement or gift for that special fellow. See our Mens' Selection here.

Miriam Haskell's jewels were meticulously hand-made, each bead and pearl carefully selected for quality, hand-wired to an intricate brass filigree backing, and ultimately backed to a second filigree, concealing any trace of its construction. These treasures are extremely collectible today and a marvel to look at. In its most popular time notable women such as Coco Chanel, Joan Crawford, Lucille Ball, and the Dutchess of Windsor were among Haskell's greatest patrons. Enjoy these beauties and take a piece of history for yourself!
