Your First Look at NAJO’s Newest Collection
Organic forms connect us to the natural forces in our lives.
The smallest pebble, smoothed by wind and water, time and touch, embodies life’s big ideas.
Inanimate yet never-ending, a true constant inextricably linked to Earth herself.
The natural successor to VIDA, a collection which celebrated life-giving powers, NAJO’s newest collection takes an even finer focus.
In PIEDRA, our brand new concept for Resort 2019, unassuming pebbles become the keystones of life.
Elevated to spectacular effect in glorious sterling silver and gleaming gold plate, these organic formations engage with skin and light in captivating ways.
Beckoning to be touched, they fall together hung in a trio on delicate necklace chains, dance off hoop earrings, and become a minimalist centrepiece in toggle bracelets and tiny studs.
This 14-piece resort collection captures the timeless NAJO aesthetic of organic lines inspired by clean Scandinavian design. At the same time, it interprets fashion’s direction towards a natural warmth with architectural edge.
The high polish of PIEDRA’s precious metals makes a playful contrast to the natural quality of rocks and draws to mind the power of transformation first seen this year in VIDA.
Variations in shapes and sizes among the pebbles in the collection are reminiscent of the way real stones are found in the natural world – by the handful. It’s a cue to wear PIEDRA en masse, layered and mixed among your favourite gold and sterling silver pieces.

NAJO Staff Picks from the Latest Collection
When designing the VIDA collection for AW19, the NAJO team drew inspiration from ancient Greek mythology for new designs rooted in the past. History reborn. Design that shows transformative power can be unlocked via precious sterling silver, gold plate and gemstones.
To help you navigate this new collection, who better to consult than our own Sydney-based team? We took a quick poll at NAJO HQ and came up with these unanimous favourites.
9 MUST-HAVES OF VIDA AW19
“The sense of history is palpable in this necklace, from the yellow gold plate to the faceted iolite centrepiece. The hammered disc references an ancient Roman treasure, yet there’s a freshness to it that hits the mark today.” -Di
“While thoroughly unique, this ring looks like it could have been an uncovered ancient treasure thanks to its oxidised, highly embellished sterling silver and brilliant square cabochon garnet. The shank is evenly sized all the way around, making this ring ideal in a chic stack.” -Frances
“Timeless and understated, this bangle offers an elegant twist on a classic style, with two entwined ovals acting as one fluid, highly polished piece. We love this design for its ability to be both a statement and a team player, mixing effortlessly with all your favourites.” -Helen
“This ring is quintessentially Jo Tory, NAJO’s creative director. A substantial, artful profile in freeform sculptural style imbued with the distinctive NAJO DNA.” -Anna
“A ribbon of yellow-gold plate dramatically alters the silhouette of these sterling-silver hoops to create an entirely new take on a perennial earring favourite.” -Maija
A firm favourite at NAJO HQ thanks to its edgy two-tone arced tubing hung with black cord. “Contemporary and unmissable.”-Tash
“An innovative hoop-like stud design, these open tear drops widen at the base for a graphic, calligraphy-inspired flourish.”-Olivia
Available in sterling silver, yellow gold plated sterling silver, or rose gold plated sterling silver, these earrings dare you to go for two shades so you wear a different colour in each ear, à la Gemma Chan at the Oscars.
“This piece is as far from a Victorian locket as you can get, yet the sentiment is still as sweet.”-Annie
A large, minimalist sphere of sterling silver hangs from a 75cm wide oval link chain and opens to reveal a perfect hiding spot for those tiny secrets (sand from your honeymoon, say) you need to keep close to your heart.

See what jewellery pieces align with your sign
Whether you’re a devoted horoscope reader or prefer to focus on creating your own destiny, there’s no denying the fun of seeing just how closely your personal style aligns with the traits attributed to your star sign.
Here we’ve matched pieces from NAJO’s brand new AW19 collection, VIDA, to those style traits determined by your place in the zodiac.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
People born under this fire sign shine brightly – they are energetic free-thinkers with a zest for adventure. The substantial profile of the Ulla Earring in yellow gold-plated sterling silver reflects Aries spirited independence and radiance.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
The simplicity of design found in the minimalist Freya Bangle and Necklace will appeal to the practical, no-nonsense nature typical of Taureans. The seamless coordination of these two pieces worn together is safe and reassuring, which suits this earth sign to no end. Safe it may be, but the dramatic black onyx discs are also striking and sexy – and who said Taureans can’t be both?
Gemini (May 22-June 21)
The Pompeii Double Drop Earring featuring the twin discs set with peridot and lolite is perfect for expressing the duality for which Geminis are famous. Two-tone metals in sterling silver and yellow gold plate extends the dual-personality metaphor. Geminis also tend to be intellectuals fond of travel who would appreciate that this earring takes its name from such a famous historic site.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Those born under this water sign are said to be just as changeable. But they are also loving, caring and sentimental. The Ripple Ring is a perfect fit, its fluid designs celebrating the beauty of this most vital element.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leos are born to shine – their ruling planet is the sun after all. The most lucky gemstones for this sign are red ones such as the garnet found in the Yayla Earring. Encircled in gold plate and set on a hammered silver hoop, this earring is the ideal match for a Leo’s fiery, ambitious desires.
Virgo (August 23-September 23)
Renowned for their meticulous attention to detail, Virgoans will relish the exquisite intricacy and craftsmanship of the Daba Ring and Daba Earring. Notorious perfectionists, people born under this sign also have a love for feminine beauty, and will adore the delicate curved carvings of these highly detailed pieces.
Libra (September 24-October 23)
Sociable and outgoing, Libra babies tend to grow up to become the life of the party. There’s also a femininity to this sign, which often translates to a love for flounces and frills. The grand and golden openwork of the Beta Large Earring in gold is sure to appeal to the vivacious personality of so many Librans.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22)
Passionate, sexy, love-obsessed – Scorpios are accused of all these traits and more. What defines those born under this sign the most perhaps is their indefinable magnetism. Charismatic, determined and desirable, they make the ultimate recipient for the Vertigo Earring and Rhadia Choker. Together, these two remarkable examples of silver jewellery design will draw all the right kind of attention. And that’s something Scorpios know about only too well.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
Famous extroverts, Sagittarians are also usually optimistic and generous. The same can be said for NAJO’s new Knockout Bangle. It’s all in the name, after all! A wide 67mm profile of highly polished sterling silver, it’s weighty, eye-catching and impossibly gorgeous, and definitely isn’t a piece for shy types.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
Dependable, resilient, serious, grounded – these are some of the traits bandied about to describe Capricorns. So what better when it comes to design than reinterpretation of tried-and-true classics? Timeless, understated and charming, our Naj ‘O’ Tension Bangle reinvents our signature ‘O’ design for a new take on an enduring beauty.
Aquarius (January 21-February 19)
We chose the Vida Beaten Locket Necklace as a perfect match for textbook Aquarians because this star sign appreciates an element of surprise, and a locket always delivers that. Unlike traditional lockets, ours is thoroughly contemporary, a stunning sphere of beaten sterling silver that opens to your secret treasure. It’s a perfect reflection of the imaginative and avant-garde nature of this air-based element.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
People born under this famous water sign tend to be sensual, artistic and spiritual. The water drop shape of the Redeem Earring is both emotive and graphic, a look that will appeal to true Pisceans for its fluidity and sense of calm.
