From colorful costume jewelry to heirloom-inspired accessories, this girl is a diamond’s best friend. Millo Haddad is a jewelry designer, curator, and business owner who knows every inch of the jewelry industry, combining classic styles with the hottest fashion-forward trends from New York. She’s the creative force behind Millo Jewelry, an online boutique that sells a curated collection of designer accessories, and she’s also the designer behind her own eponymous line of stunning pieces. Now, Millo is bringing her coveted creations to New York with her first brick-and-mortar location. Sophisticated, chic, and feminine, the boutique will be debuting in Midwood, Brooklyn this fall. Featuring modern furnishings, elegant chandeliers, and plush décor, the boutique will offer a selection of jewelry, as well as handbags and accessories.
Known for her distinctive style and eye for emerging trends, Millo first entered the jewelry market by selling choice pieces and luxury accessories on eBay. The response was huge: Millo soon earned legions of devoted followers, and the ever-increasing demand led her to create her own online store,Millo Jewelry. Millo carefully selected an eclectic mix of the finest jewelry and accessories from the best emerging designers around the globe, including Paula Mendoza, Carbon and Hyde, Anita Ko, Vita Fede, Herve Van Der Straeten, Eddie Borgo and Kismet by Milka.
Millo scoured luxury markets for the perfect jewelry pieces for her shop, but found that certain styles were difficult to come by; some were exorbitantly priced, while others simply didn’t exist. She had an epiphany: Armed with her in-depth knowledge of jewelry styles and her passion for precious gemstones, she would create her own designs that she knew her clients would love, which she could sell on her site alongside her handpicked items from established designers. The result? An in-house line that celebrates the natural beauty of gemstones with the newest jewelry styles like ear jackets and handchains.
The collection took off, and Millo has been designing ever since. Offering everything from designer clutches to stylish hats, the store is a one-stop shop for top fashion pieces for every budget. Millo’s styles have earned celebrity fans like Sophia Vergara, and have led to partnerships for exclusive capsule collections with of-the-moment designers like Dannijo and Alison Lou. Offering original designs and made-to-order pieces, Millo Jewelry offers women one-of-a-kind pieces and stunning jewelry at every price point.
