Bendel's Opens Temporary Miriam Haskell Boutique

Today Henri Bendel's is opening a temporary boutique for costume jeweler Miriam Haskell. Haskell opened her first boutique in 1926 and created pieces for everyone from Lucille Ball to Joan Crawford to the society women of New York.

Just as when she first began her business, all of Haskell's pieces are still created by hand, which is a rarity in the costume jewelry industry. And many of the vintage pieces are huge collector items today.

Pieces in the Bendel's boutique will range from $250-$1200.
