THEN, NOW, FOREVER..
The moment Ting Dayrit gave his wife Mila a packet of loose pearls, the brand that will touch the hearts of many was born.
On a love-filled day in their young marriage, Ting Dayrit gifted his wife Mila with a packet of loose pearls.
She had them set according to her own design and happily found her own friends ordering pieces for themselves.
Thus, a sparkling “little” business was born – a business that grew over the years to such admirable proportions that soon, The House of Miladay was established.
Miladay stands on the final request of Ting and Mila who passed away only 20 days apart from each other after decades of leading one of the
most successful jewelry’s establishments in the country:
“Take care of each other, take care of our people.”
They left with a legacy based on love for God and family, honesty and trust, and a deep respect for the continuity of generations behind every precious Miladay creation today.
With such a history behind them, the Dayrit children — Jaqui, Michelle, Mark, Christine and Yvonne
— look forward to a future dedicated to creating more and more beautiful investments that can be loved and passed on from generation to generation.
With two generations of passion, love and devotion before them, it is now the turn of the third generation to carry on the Miladay legacy.
Guided by the five Dayrit siblings, this new crop of Miladay is seeking to continue the family tradition while also bringing its own personality into the fold.
To be at the forefront of fine jewelry for the new age group and to fulfill Mila Dayrit’s dream of every Filipino owning a Miladay no matter how small, the company launches 1380
– a celebration of the new generation of adventurous, fun, edgy but always classy individuals.
At its core, 1380 is all about family just like its parent brand, Miladay Jewels.
A brainchild of the 3rd generation, the pieces revolves around the 8 cousins who conceptualized it in hopes to infuse their own personalities and identities into the company.
The name 1380 comes from the address of the family home of the Dayrits.
Ting and Mila Dayrit bought this home with dreams of creating happy memories with their children and their children’s children for years to come.
Though they passed early, their dream certainly lives on.
