Meet The Owner
Born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, Mia Moross has had an affinity for antique jewelry since she was old enough to walk. Rummaging through her grandmother’s jewelry box, she developed a great love for rings, in particular, as they tell stories of commitment, love, and achievement. Mia believed, even as a child, that jewelry is the key ingredient in transforming a look.
Mia started The One I Love NYC in September of 2013, shortly after moving to New York City to obtain her Masters in Social Work from New York University. Having been an avid collector of jewelry for years, she turned her passion into a business when others took interest, privately purchasing parts of her collections or simply asking for help in finding the perfect piece.
While she has always had a strong appreciation for the business of fine jewelry, she takes an immense amount of pride in the art of curating. Hence, when it was suggested to her that she create a site, she jumped at the idea not only from a business perspective, but also as a chance to curate a collection of pieces and shape her perception of beautiful.
"I did all this as a passion, never imagining that it would take off as it has! Regardless, I find antiques to hold an immense amount of importance. They are a piece of history. A legacy that carries on the story of those before us, and our story, long after we’re gone."
