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.

The Transeasonal Jewellery Edit
Autumn was slow to reveal itself this year, giving us extra time to enjoy transeasonal dressing. The most versatile and experimental period in the seasonal fashion calendar, the transeasonal wardrobe equals lots of layering and textural contrasts, such as silk under cashmere, chunkier cotton and linen knits and denim. It’s when we start reaching for the cotton twill trenchcoat and fine merino wool cardigan to layer over our shirts and long-sleeved tshirts.
Indeed, winter is only around the corner, but in many parts of Australia, transeasonal dressing will continue to be relevant throughout these relatively mild coldest months. The flexibility of layering suits air-conditioned homes and offices plus those unexpectedly warm afternoons.
Wardrobe colours tend to get darker and more neutral as the weather cools, especially as tones of black, navy, grey or camel working more readily layered together than hits of riotous colour.
Your transeasonal jewellery wardrobe should take the same layered approach as your clothing for maximum impact.
How to wear: necklaces
Break that rule of only wearing necklaces against your skin and wear your favourite statement choker such as the Hola or El Sol over a turtleneck, or pop a showstopping necklace over your crew-neck jumper to bring texture, brightness and shine.
How to wear: bracelets
Keep your sleeves long, tight and snug and accessorise on top with a gleaming beadwork cuff like the Senorita. Or layer your watch with the finer Cryptic Cuff in two-tone silver and rose gold plate. The oxidised sterling silver of the Bohemian Adventure Bangle has a moodiness that’s perfect for heading into winter.
How to wear: rings
Similarly, the oxidised and beaten effect of the silver in our Bands of Time Ring is dark, detailed and mysterious, perfect paired with chunkier sweaters and long sleeves that beg to be pulled cosily down past your wrists.
How to wear: earrings
Choose earrings to illuminate your face, set off your hair style and makeup without overtaking your look. Our transeasonal picks are smaller in profile than what we might choose in summer when necklines and shoulders tend to be barer. The Need a Hug Earring will add a hint of sheen without any fuss, while the two-tone Tranquila Stud and Shayla Earring offer the best of both worlds in sterling silver with rose or yellow gold plate. A meeting of cool-white silver and warm golden tones, two-tone jewellery aptly symbolises the seasonal transition of nature in all its beauty.

What to wear to brunch, an egg hunt or Easter dinner
Coming up: a lovely long four-day weekend! Whether you’ll be celebrating a traditional Easter with family and lots of eating or taking the extra leisure time to catch up with friends, you’ll want to make sure you’re decked out in style.
At its heart, Easter is a celebration of new life and rebirth, which is particularly fitting in the northern hemisphere where they are moving into spring. For us southerners, Easter is still a lovely time to celebrate new beginnings.
A new outfit to mark the occasion of Easter is a custom which has been around since at least the 1500s and is aptly reflected in this witty 18th-century verse:
“At Easter let your clothes be new
Or else be sure you will it rue.”
The importance of dressing in your finest for Easter culminated in the age-old tradition of the Easter bonnet parade, something still seen in Australian primary schools.
At NAJO, we’re reimagining fancy Easter dressing in stunning sterling silver and glorious gemstones.
Our favourite daytime looks for Easter
A stunning silver bracelet or bangle is the ideal accessory for a brunch or lunch party with family or friends. Always elegant, a wide beaten silver bangle makes a statement all on its own. For a more casual and festive vibe, layer a fine new friend such as our Personality Bracelet into your classic arm candy of Naj ‘O’ Bangle or Ribbon Bangle.
Bring an edgy, fashion-forward look to your weekend ensemble with our Rider Cuff, its graphic cross bar and baubles designed to draw attention.
Easter by night style guide
Our gleaming gemstone earrings are like tiny precious decorated Easter eggs: glossy, colourful, smooth and utterly irresistible.
However you choose to spend your long weekend, you’ll be dressed for evenings out or entertaining at home with a glamorous pair of drops, like these lemony beauties. Perfect for your upcoming winter dressing, our luminous Snowdrop Pear Earrings are never hidden, no matter how many layers of coats, scarves and hats you’re wearing.
In a sweet shade of robin’s egg blue, our Little Lagoon Earrings bring festive Easter spirit to every outfit. Or turn heads with our blushing Sleeping Beauty Earrings in egg-shaped silver discs coated in 14-carat rose gold plate.
For the up-to-the-minute style, try our new Rainforest Earring inspired by the mysterious depths of the Amazon.
