Inspiration for the striking texture, which features a crisscross motif and satin-like sheen, comes from a trip she took along the Mekong River through Cambodia and Vietnam. She passed through small craft villages where she observed artisans weaving bamboo baskets, and from that moment was determined to create a truly innovative pattern for her jewelry designs that incorporated a basketweave-like.
This combination is comprised of three different pairs as follow:
Florentine Gold Hoops
Mia Gold Jackets
Florentine Gold Jackets
Nguyen’s latest design was recently awarded a patent pending status which covers an element in the new earring collection and allows these pieces to be transformed for multiple-use, convertible styling. Earrings featured in the collection can individually be turned into a pendant and worn on a necklace, or used as a charm.
Due to the natural state of stones used by Nina Nguyen Designs, each piece will vary. Naturally occurring variations such as shape, color, shading, color concentration, thickness, texture, etc, are to be expected, are not flaws, and are not considered a manufacturer defect.
