Look Book via New York Magazine

New York Magazine does a weekly piece worth checking out called Look Book, where they interview and photograph a person with a unique or chic sense of style. Check out this past week's interview with Nazgol Jahan, which seemed to get a lot of interesting feedback. I have summarized the interview below. Let me know what you think.
The photograph by Jake Chessum is awesome!
What are you up to today? I’m on my way to work. I live on the Upper East Side, but I work at Phillips auction house, in Chelsea.
What do you do at Phillips? I’m the worldwide director of the jewelry department. My family are jewelers, so I grew up in that world. I studied art history at Columbia and went to law school, but in between I did my gemology degree.
You must have loads of jewelry. I have different kinds of things. A lot of it is signed, like a retro Bulgari necklace. Or it’ll just be a beautiful emerald-and-diamond Art Deco bracelet. But that’s the high end. When it comes to fun jewelry, I’m pretty simple. Around my neck I always wear one marquise diamond on a very fine platinum chain. That’s just for everyday.
Did your husband pick out that engagement ring? He proposed to me in Greece without a ring. He’s a plastic surgeon, so he didn’t think it would be smart to pick out my ring. When we got home, he spoke to my dad, and I gave some input on the stone. It’s a four-carat flawless emerald-cut diamond.
Tell me about the rest of your outfit. It’s all Barbara Bui underneath, Miu Miu flats, and a Diane Von Furstenberg coat. My fur stole is something my mom bought for me in London. She also bought me my Herm├Ęs Birkin bag. She’s always picking stuff up for her two daughters because we work all the time. She’s a good mommy like that.
