Influences Found in Milamore Jewelry

Through his designs, Root shares his multicultural experiences, weaving tales of heritage and love into every Milamore piece. Named in memory of his grandmother, each jewelry item embodies her spirit of miracles and love. Inspirations for this collection include:
- Kintsugi Collection: Influenced by the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi – finding beauty in imperfection and embracing the flaws and history of an object. The term "kintsugi" translates to "golden joinery" or "golden repair" in Japanese. This art form traditionally involves repairing broken pottery or ceramics with lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver or platinum.
- EN Collection: "en" (縁) in Japanese refers to a concept of fate or connection between people, suggesting a bond or a meaningful relationship.
- Infusion of Wabi-Sabi and Yin-Yang Philosophies: Wabi-sabi, rooted in Japanese Zen Buddhism, celebrates the beauty in imperfection, impermanence and simplicity, encouraging an appreciation for the flawed and transient aspects of life. Yin-yang, originating from ancient Chinese philosophy, represents the concept of dualism, illustrating how contrary forces may be complementary and interdependent in the natural world, balancing each other in a harmonious system.
- Toi-et-moi: This jewelry term – French for "you and me" – refers to two gemstones set side by side or close to each other. The two stones often differ in size, shape or color, symbolizing the union of two unique individuals coming together in a relationship.
