I love the idea of mixing fine and fashion jewelry in your look to tell your story. We can trace some of this aesthetic sensibility to jewelry collector Millicent Rogers, who in 1947 left the party scenes of New York and Europe for a more peaceful life in New Mexico. She adapted to the region by adopting a Southwestern bohemian style, stacking Native American silver and turquoise jewelry with her oversized diamond statement brooches. Her bold pairings of Navajo jewelry with diamonds have continued to influence haute bohemian fashion today.
