Winter Warmers: The Earring Edit
Well, winter has decidedly arrived, which means we’re rugging up in coats, scarves, gloves, even beanies – and covering up most of our key jewellery-adorning areas!
Solution? Statement earrings.
Show off your personal style and add an all-important pop of colour, shape and shine to those chunky textural layers of cable knit, leather, denim, cashmere and faux fur.
Our winter earring edit falls into 3 key looks:
Resolve those winter blues (and greys) with bold coloured gemstone earrings. Like mini light globes, they’ll illuminate your face and brighten your wardrobe choices – which tend to be a little more neutral at this time of year. Try the zingy lemon or soft lavender of our Momentum Earring. The aqua chalcedony of our Lunar Lagoon Earring is perfectly offset by its moody oxidised sterling silver setting. If you prefer to go soft and pink (gorgeous against grey wool), try the blushing cabochon beauty of our Promenade Earring in pink chalcedony.
Sculptural & graphic
Not a colour queen? Make your statement with shape instead. Small and sweet, our Kiss Stud brings graphic impact with its organic X shape – like characterful calligraphy except in sterling silver. For a larger look, our Pear Drop gives a substantial-yet-lightweight profile with its flat-edge outline design. Our on-trend De Monde Earring will look superb with a classic black dress for evening or glamorise a plain black turtleneck.
Our last look keeps things understated and chic for go-anywhere ease and timeless style. Our ultra-simple, ever-chic Need a Hug earring is a wardrobe staple, simple as that. And as the name suggests, our eponymous Naj ‘O’ drops encapsulate our brand’s DNA: strong, sculptural design with endless, wide-reaching appeal. A Scandinavian influence is evident in our minimalist Weeping Woman Earring – its highly polished, elongated teardrop shape an ideal counterpoint to heavily textured winter clothing.

NAJO’s Monday-to-Sunday Style
The who-what-wear of NAJO designs – for every day of the week!
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that NAJO has the perfect pieces to take you from Monday through to Sunday without skipping a beat. Need proof? Here it is, direct from NAJO’s very own Australian team (aka a group of MAJOR fashion and jewellery junkies).
Danielle, Customer Service Manager & Graphic Design Coordinator
On Mondays I’m a minimalist with feminine edge, mixing muted tones with maybe a splash of colour or pattern. I’m usually wearing Bassike or Zara. For me, jewellery is all about fine lines with geometry as seen in NAJO’s Undulation Ring and Daintree earring.
Di, Accounts Receivable Manager
On Tuesdays, I prefer to wear simple pieces that are comfortable and don’t get in the way. I love the edginess of the Taper Huggies and the Perpendicular Earrings, both in rose gold – my flavour of the season. I love wearing my rose gold-plated pieces with classic designs from Viktoria & Woods and Ralph Lauren – along with the rest of my vast collection of jewellery gathered over my 12 years with NAJO!
Annie, NSW Sales Manager
I’ve been matching jewellery and clothing for as long as I can remember and I love it! I am a Lee Mathews girl through and through and love wearing it with larger oxidised silver jewellery pieces and bold highly polished designs. On Tuesdays, I like mixing the different textures of the Naj ‘O’ Bangle or Amarres Wide Bangle with the Bohemian Adventure Bangle.
Maija, Production Coordinator
On Wednesdays, I’m as quirky as any other day of the week, and can usually be found in my two favourite brands, Alpha60 and COS. Sometimes I’ll throw in some Issey Mikayke. I love clean, Scandinavian-inspired designs for jewellery and am all about statement earrings. My favourites at the moment are the Momentum and Amarres Hoops.
Tash, Pick/Packer aka Social Media star
On Thursdays, I’m running around making sure the orders are perfect, so I need to be comfortable, but style never goes out the window. I like clean, simple lines and will likely be found in UNIQLO and H&M, paired with my favourite Like a Breeze Necklace and Gyspy Hoops.
Anna, Production Manager
On Fridays, I like to keep it corporate but chic. Even though we are at the end of the week, I'm in design meetings so I like to pair a business jacket with boyfriend jeans and brown brogues, you'll normally see me in Alexander Wang, like a second skin. When it comes to accessorizing classic silver designs that remain timeless appeal to my style language. I'm always in my Fantasia Bracelet and Comfort Band Ring.
Suzy, Sales Victoria
On Fridays, like most days, I like to wear stylish and comfortable clothes that can take me anywhere. Being a Melbourian how can I not represent the Garden State - I live in Scanlan and Theodore, the same ethos applies to my NAJO jewellery. My favourites are Mode Huggie Earrings, the Floriade Cuff and the Oasis Ring – statement pieces that are both elegant and beautiful to wear.
Susan, General Manager
On Saturdays, I’m a casual mum: Dr Denim jeans, a classic Celine t-shirt or a printed dress from SEED, I am about simple jewellery with lots of layering. My go-to weekend accessories are NAJO’s Like a Breeze and Algonquin necklaces which are perfect for layering, and either a Kiss Stud or Double Beat Earring. I love that Najo has an array for different tastes.
Meg, Sales Rep WA
My favourite Saturday pieces are very classic: the Pool of Tears Bracelet, the matching Pool of Tears Necklace, and the Too True Earring. They go with my whole classic diva look – think Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Prada.
Helen, Financial Manager
I like to be very casual on Sundays. Usually, we have family gatherings or I’m just relaxing with the hubby. I never take off my Bands of Time Ring and my go-to classic earrings are Silent Tears. I live in my Escada capris and Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses.

Your first look: La Isla SS19
NAJO’s upcoming collection inspiration comes from the runway & nature
Let’s set the scene. You wake up, the warmth and brightness of the sun against your eyelids. You hear the breeze through the palms, smell the saltwater on your skin.
Welcome to La Isla SS19.
For NAJO’s Spring Summer 2019 collection, we’ve taken our visual cues from an exotic tropical island getaway. The mood is sultry, seductive. The beauty is clichéd in its unspoilt perfection: sparkling aqua waters, golden textured landscapes that blush to the deepest pink on dusk’s approach.
The island – La Isla – holds mysteries and promises treasured luxuries. The mysteries of deep water and lush greenery translate in jewellery terms to luminous turquoise, blue agate, moonstone, amazonite, rose quartz, amethyst. Those summer luxuries of long uninterrupted days and sun-kissed skin are captured in precious sterling silver and yellow gold plate in both polished and beaten finishes.
Our new island theme echoes the fashion designs by two champions of the runways for the Spring/Summer 18 Haute Couture shows: Schiaparelli, representing the brilliance of the old guard, and Iris van Herpen, an exemplar of newness and technological mastery.
Schiaparelli’s latest haute couture show, in Paris’s iconic Place Vendôme, explores the idea of a luxury getaway via fluid, delicate silhouettes layered with structured, heavily embellished jackets. Patterns are both naturalistic and geometric – almost Aztec-inspired in warm, earthy colours. The espadrille – that ultimate island accessory – is a mainstay.
In her extraordinary show “Ludi Naturae”, Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen takes a more scientific approach to the island theme with sculptural silhouettes inspired by a bird’s-eye view of natural land formations. In an earth-like palette of muted yellows and greens, greys and blacks, these intricately crafted designs are triumphs of innovation, expressing movement and pattern in entirely new ways.
With Founder Jo Tory taking the creative helm preview the back stage process of the SS19 La Isla Campaign shoot. A beautiful collaboration of strong creative women coming together to produce a new visual language for Spring/Summer.
“This season has been about capturing the sumptuous nature of summer, we want the jewellery to evoke the spirit of a retreat - a luxe getaway and basking in golden hues. Key gemstones being Amazonite and Moonstone, with sun-drenched gold pieces and tribalesque oxidized silver. Runaway to the paradise with us and fall in with La Isla SS19."
Meet Emma, our amazing model who is our muse and embodies the spirit for La Isla, the shoot was shot by the wonderful Ana and the makeup by the artistic Jacyln.
Now you’ve had a taste of island life, interpreted through contemporary fashion and design, are you ready for La Isla SS19?
