About Mia Lara -
The Mia Lara Jewellery collection is a balance between a bold aesthetic and elegant simplicity. It is contemporary, yet timeless. The pieces are fresh, versatile and playful with the collection being characterised by the juxtaposition of the organic with the refined. Intrigued by this interplay, Mia is drawn to rich, vibrant color combinations of precious and semi-precious stones accented by elements of both textured and polished metals. Mia celebrates the beauty expressed in the asymmetry of the natural world and designs with this creative vision in mind.
After attending Columbia University and receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and Anthropology, Mia went on to work in the Fashion and Finance Industries. During her five years in the corporate world, Mia worked arduously to realize her dream of founding a company by devoting all her spare time to her creative vision and selling her jewelry at local New York Markets on weekends.
In early 2010, Mia dove wholeheartedly into her business to make it a full-time endeavor. She traveled to India where she spent a few months cultivating design concepts and sourcing stones. In the Indian cities of Pune and Jaipur, Mia has spent many happy days sifting through cases of precious and semi-precious stones, reveling in their resplendent natural beauty. A deep inspiration is drawn from the stones; with the spectrum of hue and texture guiding Mia's designs.
