It was also said that her pieces began to break the tradition of men only buying jewelry for women. Women wanted to collect the gorgeous pieces. In 1968, she purchased a compound in a small village in Spain and renovated many of the buildings. She wasn’t that fond of fame and largely kept out of the spotlight.
