For a better part of her short 101 years, Millie Wilde scoured the Southwest in search of some of the finest and most unusual jewelry that we have come across in recent years. Over the years, Millie had assembled a collection of over 300 pieces of fabulous jewelry.

Millie was a frequent visitor to our galleries, and a great friend, always with a contagious smile.

Today, Millie's personal collection is available exclusively to friends of River Trading Post.

Here we present a sample of Millie's extensive collection.  You can see more when you visit River Trading Post.
