We are so proud to be working with one of Denver’s best freelance fashion photographers, Nicole Marcelli. Nicole specializes in capturing the essence of fashion design in her storytelling photographs.
Nicole’s imagery represents Nina Nguyen Design’s jewelry perfectly by exposing the beauty of the model, the natural scenery with spectacular Colorado sunlight and of course the jewelry in a relaxed and free-spirited shoot. We are thrilled to have partnered with Nicole to produce this artwork.
Forming naturally within the rock crevice of ironstone, Boulder Opal has a natural and vibrant hued earthy aesthetic. You can identify a Boulder Opal by the bright and varied colors and pattern and the distinctive layer of solid brown ironstone on the underside. This dark ironstone backing is key to the Boulder Opal’s unique deep and vibrant colors.
A Boulder Opal is a true statement piece, forming in the inner part of a boulder and is found within in Queensland, Western Australia. Due to the dryness of the region these stones seldom crack or erode and the stone polishes effortlessly.
Beautiful and durable, Boulder Opal falls slightly higher than average on the Mohs Scale, just below quartz, meaning it is also highly durable. It can be scratched by metal, but is resistant to damage from anything softer, so you can feel comfortable wearing it every day.
Nature provides the medium that is used in this feature stone of Nina Nguyen’s new Ha Long Bay Collection, but with the beautiful inspiration, and artisanship of Nina. Not only will you own a timeless handcrafted piece cultivated by Nina, honoring her philosophy of using organic materials with integrity, awareness, beauty and love, but will truly be taking part in something special while adding to your wardrobe and jewelry collection.
