Not just a pretty picture book but a work of serious investigation and scholarship. By far the best book on Miriam Haskell jewelry, filled with n beautiful photographs AND a treasure trove of never before known information. For every level of collector. Extremely helpful in identifying older unsigned Haskell pieces. A top notch piece of work. I have well over 80 books on vintage costume jewelry and this ranks as one of the best!

A superb book for the new or even seasoned Haskell collector. The photography is first class, the selection of pieces is spectacular and the descriptions are a pleasure to read. This book is worth its weight in gold for the knowledge it provides in assiting you in recognizing authentic Haskell pieces, dating them and placing a value on them. It has set a new standard in Collector books that hopefully the other writers will soon follow.

Format: Hardcover
Impressive all the way around, Gordon and Pamfiloff have outdone themselves putting together a superior reference. When people ask me about this book (and they do!), I tell them the knowledge gleaned on unsigned Haskell pieces will more than pay for adding this title to a reference library straight out of the gate. However, poring over the entire text and perusing all the photos is a must for anyone enamored with vintage costume jewelry. Quite simply, don't miss this one! -- Pamela Y. Wiggins, Author of "Buying and Selling Antiques and Collectibles on eBay" and Antiques Guide for About.com ([...]

Format: Hardcover
If you love Haskell jewelry, you need this book. In fact, you need this book if you love costume jewelry of any kind. It is thoroughly researched, beautifully photographed, and with exactly the kind of information for which jewelry collectors hunger.

Do you want a coffee table book full of beautiful pictures? Here it is. Need a price guide to Miriam Haskell jewelry? Here - with real insight and useful information about what makes pieces more or less valuable. Do you want to know more about the history of the company and of the people who made it? There is a wealth of carefully researched information, much of it never before published.

Best of all, for fans of Haskell jewelry, is the detailed information about construction techniques, designs, lines, beads, findings, and all the details that allow us to separate the wheat from the chaff, and genuine Miriam Haskell jewelry from the mountains of lookalikes and wannabees.

This is a masterpiece of a jewelry reference book. If only they were all this good!

MIRIAM HASKELL JEWELRY A Schiffer Book For Collectors - With Price Guide by Cathy Gordon & Sheila Pamfiloff just released is a must for all vintage costume jewelry collectors.
This hard cover book with dust cover has over 600 photographs
by co-author Sheila Pamfiloff unless otherwise indicated - other contributions duly noted on the acknowledgement page....text starting with the history of Miriam Haskell - to identifying and dating Haskell Jewelry - advertising and a fine example of Haskell Watercolors - on to the Haskell Designers , Frank Hess, Robert Clark, Peter Raines, Larry Vrba, to Camille Petronzio who will carry the Legacy Forward - into the future of Miriam Haskell.
Each page of this 256 tome of work is aglow with text or pictures of this exquisite work of Miriam Haskell. Cathy and Sheila
in their text and photographs have paid close attention to
showing detail plus workmanship and design even finding a group
of a collection of old Haskell filigree charts.
Chapter 3- Advertising and the Haskell Watercolors - have matched the watercolor with an actual piece of the jewerly. What
finer attribution could be shown as with the ad and the piece
of jewelry.
Great care was taken in the presentation and page set up of
this publication. Jewelry collectors of all levels will find
this work of art a must for their jewelry library.

Whether you're a novice or a seasoned collector,dealer or jewelry historian, this book is a MUST HAVE for any jewelry lover's library. Meticulous research includes the history of Miriam Haskell and her designers,clear and concise detailing of construction, manufacturing techniques and how to spot the fakes.

Beautiful photography of mouthwatering jewels show the front as well as the most important and often neglected backs of the jewelry, clasps, findings, etc. This book sets the standard that all books on costume jewelry should follow. Not just a pretty picture book, but the ULTIMATE jewelry reference. Thank you Cathy and Sheila for a SPLENDID job well done!!

Format: Hardcover
What a wonderful book! And eagerly awaited by fans of the fabulous Haskell jewelry. This book has quickly become THE encyclopedia of Miriam Haskell, showing amazing jewelry, fantastic watercolors, and up close and personal photographs of the jewelry, most especially the backs where construction is so important in identifying unmarked jewelry by this important designer. Every collector will want to add this book to their collection. Thank you to Cathy Gordon and Sheila Pamfiloff for giving us exactly what we wanted, and then so much more.

This book sets a new standard for all future jewelry reference books. Not just a set of pretty pictures (over 600!), but in depth descriptions of fabrication techniques, design choices, and materials. If you study this book, you will be able to tell the difference between the real Haskell pieces and the merely wannabes. Since there are many pieces found (especially on ebay) that are claiming to be unsigned Haskell, you need to read this book! Thanks to Cathy and Sheila, we will now be able to differentiate the fakes from the fabulous!
