Miriam Haskell for Marchesa Jewelry Bows at Fashion Week

New York–American couture costume jeweler Miriam Haskell collaborated with eveningwear brand Marchesa to create an exclusive collection of costume jewelry inspired by Marchesa’s elegant, handcrafted designs.

The pieces were shown in tandem with Marchesa’s ready-to-wear collection at the brand’s Fall 2011 presentation on Wednesday night.

The jewelry collection, which includes a range of choker necklaces, rings and earrings, combines Marchesa’s signature femininity and dramatic embellishments with Miriam Haskell’s hallmark filigree, glass and crystal beading.

Designed to complement Marchesa’s Fall 2011 collection, the pieces echo both the brand’s muse and namesake, Marchesa Luisa Casati, as well as the designers’ most recent inspiration, the fabled Miss Havisham of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.
