BE INSPIRED BY PALOMA SS19
Be free and be beautiful.
That’s the mantra we’re taking away from NAJO’s latest release for SS19, PALOMA.
Unlock the serenity that comes from embracing who you are and celebrating the most enriching aspects of womanhood and beauty.
The spirit of Paloma, Spanish for ‘dove’, is ethereal and peace-giving.
Exquisite jewellery in delicate pastel shades that whispers rather than shouts. Paloma unapologetically celebrates femininity, knowing that to be feminine and feminist is never mutually exclusive.
NAJO wants women to feel free to express their own vision of beauty, whatever that looks like.
For us, this season is a statement in romantic elegance. Choose jewellery that speaks to you, lightens your heart and lifts your spirit.
Paloma isn’t just about surface beauty. These pieces are also beautiful because they are comfortable and enjoyable to wear, crafted of impeccable quality from semiprecious stones and precious metals.
Be fearless in your choices, soar high in your convictions and opt to adorn yourself with ethereal grace for Spring/Summer 19.

Australia’s biggest fashion week is all over for another year, but its effects will stretch for months to come. Here are some of the highlights that NAJO designers took home from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2019.
What the guests were wearing
One of the most apparent trends from the Sydney style set in attendance was the matching two-piece suit – something we’ve rarely seen in such abundance since Working Girl. This time around, the suits were both tailored and unstructured. Relaxed and elegant styles counted equally in the style stakes so long as top + bottom were in perfect sync.
What was accessorising the runway
Jewellery-wise, there were plenty of statement earrings accenting the resort collections, as seen at Bec + Bridge and Aje. Even the tailored minimalism of Anna Quan’s collection included some large-yet-fine gold hoops and pendants.
What was beautiful
Our favourite beauty trend to emerge from this year’s shows was what Vogue dubbed the ‘elevated knot’, that is, an updated take on the basic top knot. At Bondi Born, the look was particularly intricate, with Renya Xydis conceiving “squiggly” up-dos for the designer swimwear brand. It was also the dominant beauty trend at the Lee Mathews Resort 2020 show.
What trends felt timeless
The equestrian-inspired scarf prints at Jonathan Simkhai felt like future classics, especially paired with oversized hoop earrings, and from the same designer, a couple of modern takes on the tuxedo dress, one wonderfully offset by a large cuff on the wrist.

It’s been late arriving this year, the cooler weather. But it’s here, and now likely to hang about for a while. Rugging up in bulkier clothes doesn’t mean compromising your jewellery style. It’s an opportunity to adjust the way you wear your favourite pieces, and maybe invest in a new one or two.
Here are NAJO’s top three tips for wearing fine jewellery when the temperature drops.
1. Collar up
Punctuate a fine fitted turtleneck or high crew neck with a fabulous statement collar.
The Big Spratling Necklace is a luxurious heirloom exquisitely crafted in Mexico by artisan silversmiths. Its woven design, studded with small silver beads, will enliven even the simplest black or grey knit.
The Fidelity Necklace, meanwhile, with its graduating links, is substantial enough to sit under your coat and still shine like a star.
We love the sculptural seamlessness of the El Sol Choker – still textured but guaranteed not to snag your best cashmere scarf.
The same can be said of the Dover Choker, the moody onyx centrepiece designed complement those darker seasonal shades.
Finally, the Vineyard Necklace is a minimalist twist on wearing gleaming silver beads, the flattened dome discs offering a streamlined, lightweight profile and wonderful interplay with light.
2. Ultimate showpiece
Even when the temperature drops to single digits and you’re covered from beanie to boot, there’s still a chance to express your style story.
Diehard NAJO fans (we know you’re out there, and we love you for it!) will readily recognise our bestselling Weeping Woman Earrings – a favourite anytime of year. Now you can warm up those grey winter days with the same style in 14-carat rose gold plated sterling silver.
Staying in those golden tones, the Beta Large Gold Earrings will glamorise a chunky scarf, or stick to the sterling silver version for that grey marle cable knit sweater.
Speaking of chunky, the double loop effect of our Strudel Hoop mimics a stitch of yarn in knitting, except in highly polished sterling silver. The Flounce Large Earrings are a maximalist’s dream, a long tri-hooped design reaching almost to your collarbone. The ultimate winter head-turner.
3. Cuff em!
What we love about cuffs in winter is that they are smooth and substantial enough to sit over a slim-fitting sleeve. Our favourites for this season are the Shia Hinged Bangle with its oxidised embellishment, the clean simplicity of the Roma Cuff, the traditionally inspired Senorita Cuff with its beadwork trim and the glorious ornamentation of the Flutter by Night Cuff – the ultimate future heirloom.
