Diane von Furstenberg launches costume jewellery
In collaboration with Haskell Jewels
Diane von Furstenberg is returning to the fashion and costume jewellery business after a hiatus of more than 30 years. The collection is an offering of necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets, in collaboration with Haskell Jewels. “We were in business together 30 years ago, and now we’re back,” von Furstenberg said, talking about Haskell Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frank Fialkoff’s role overseeing von Furstenberg’s similar range in the 80s.
Asked how the duo first met, Fialkoff spoke about the pair’s professional history before being interrupted by von Furstenberg who said, “Oh, we dated.”
The designer went on to tell press that she is still doing fine jewellery in collaboration with H.Stern, but people ask her for costume jewels. "They want to have the $300 necklace.” She explained.
Prices for the collection range from $68 to $628, far below those of von Furstenberg’s high-end collection.
