I started my jewelry collection in 1988 when I moved to NYC and had my first job at Condé Nast. The turquoise necklace is from Aspen, I bought it in 1989 for $300. I took it to my friend and jeweler, Aurora Lopez. I love her work with gold and messaging. She added her signature gold nuggets, a scarab I brought back from Egypt and added a quote from Kahlil Gibran on the back of the pendant. Turquoise with purple and green are my favorite colors so I asked Tito to make me the ring with those colors and he did. He called it 'The Amanda Ring.'
