HASKELL TODAY (information from Cathy Gordon)
“M. Haskell” is used for the company’s current, but less expensive jewelry.
Trendy Haskell jewelry is marketed under “Jewels of Haskell” and “Haskell”.
The lines that are faithful to what we consider Miriam Haskell jewelry are marked with the traditional “Miriam Haskell” mark. Due to the large number
of fakes, the Haskell Company is now issuing a certificate of authenticity with its high-end pieces.
Haskell continues to use findings and beads that may have been purchased years ago (including the horseshoe signature if it is on a filigree that fits
a piece they make).
**The Haskell Jewels of today is a rapidly growing company, which designs and distributes an extensive private label program for major retailers.
Haskell Jewels also produces jewelry for other famous lines:
Haskell launched J. Lo by Jennifer Lopez jewelry in 2003.
Haskell launched Christopher Radko jewelry in early 2005, a holiday jewelry collection.
Betsey Johnson jewelry was launched in 2006.
Fall 2007 brought the debut of O Oscar, an Oscar de La Renta company.
Spring 2008 will see the re-launch of Kenneth Cole jewelry by Haskell Jewels.
The luxury Miriam Haskell line, is still handmade in their New York City studio.
