According to records in the Tiffany & Co archives, Izabel M. Coles joined the jewelry design department 1917, and remained with the company into the early 1930s. She was one of a handful of women trained in the applied arts to work on Louis Comfort Tiffany's jewelry, as well as one of a small band of designing women (including Sally James Farnham, wife of Tiffany designer Paulding Farnham) who purchased jewelry directly from Gustav Manz, who created numerous mountings for Tiffany & Co. during the same period.

But there's another side to Coles' career, as described in our guest post for Cooper Hewitt's Object of the Day. For more on Coles' relationship to Manz and his circle, check out Moonstruck Over Moonstone.
