A JEWEL OF A DECADE: “We met on JDate,” kidded Gabrielle Fialkoff, president of Haskell Jewels, of how she connected with Decades owner Cameron Silver. “We got to the second date before we struck a deal. I’m not easy.” “You’re so not easy,” Silver enthusiastically concurred. Joking aside, the two discovered they were costume jewelry kindred spirits at a Miriam Haskell-sponsored CFDA panel in May and started to cook up the idea for a collaboration. On Tuesday night, the result of that collaboration, a 24-piece Art Deco-inspired jewelry collection out of gilded Russian gold and gun metal, was revealed at a party in Los Angeles at Decades. The collection, which is called Uptown/Downtown, is priced from $250 to $1,500 and will be sold at Decades exclusively until the middle of next month, when it spreads to Miriam Haskell’s retail network of specialty and department stores, including Nordstrom and Tootsies. Joining Fialkoff and Silver at the launch were George Kotsiopoulos, Alice Eve and Kristin Davis, who wore a Pauline Trigere dress from Decades that prompted Silver to dive into fashion history. “She was the first designer in 1962 to use black models,” he noted. “This is why we love Cameron. How would we ever find that out?” said Davis. “Every time I come here, I get an education.”
