Calamity Jane, Easy Rider, fantastical horseback rides and vast desert plains…

The so-aptly named Wild West has always captured our imaginations. Wide open spaces, and vast silences have fueled my desire to escape, and wish to reconnect with the power of wild nature. Great expanses of infinite possibilities meet a need for freedom that resonates perfectly with my vision of modern jewelry that is moving and free of all constraints. What better celebration of the forces of nature than the integration of it into the history of Maison Messika through the use of materials other than precious metals or my queen of stones, the diamond.

Diamonds set against wood, stones lighter than feathers. In this new High Jewelry collection, necklaces and other pieces of High Jewelry tame the materials and respond to this nature where diamonds become talismans, and stack like a totem. As with Messika’s beautiful High Jewelry collections, the Born to be Wild collection comprises of the stunning sub collections called Black HawkDesert BloomDesert Bloom High JewelryDiamond CatcherSnake DanseSparkling ArrowSun TribeValley of Fire and Wild Moon.
