Who is Nina Nguyen?
“The road has been one of pure entrepreneurship; Hardships, sacrifice, long hours, risk & reward. All of these I have endured and I have absorbed everything the journey has taught me.”
“I think all products should be made in a manner that benefits everyone involved. I would love for my jewelry to bring this message: That people should always be concerned with where the things they purchase come from, who made them, where the materials came from, how long they last, and what will become of it when its life is over.”
A socially conscious entrepreneur and an advocate for fair labor practice, Nina, a lover of nature and caregiver to the earth, takes great pride in knowing her jewelry is produced using sustainable and earth conscious materials. She strives for organic gemstones, hand-crafted recycled metals and time-honored jewelry-making processes that are married to create designs as individual and unique as the customers who treasure her collections. Nina's unique talent for capturing cutting edge designs that embrace classic and timeless styles mixed with global inspiration, speak to her love and passion all things beautiful.
