What is your favorite piece of jewelry?
I have many favorite pieces of jewelry, but I would say all of the jewelry my grandmother has given me. She gave me a beautiful antique ring that was her mother’s. It is gold and has a flower on it. She also gave me this unique antique piece that has perfume in it and a place for lipstick. Women used to carry it in their purses and I love it..

I think Piaget is a very important brand because it truly reflects the ideals that I like to bide by life. It is a company that is committed to being innovative. Also, I love their partnerships; for example, Piaget supports the Independent Spirit Awards which celebrates diversity and community and both of which are strong aspects of Piaget. Also I love their relationship with the past with celebrities like Jackie Kennedy. Truly a sense of timeless history.
