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

 

1. POMPEII IOLITE NECKLACE

“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

2. BRAID GARNET RING

“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

3. TWISTER BANGLE

“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

Di, Frances and Helen's picks

4. RIPPLE RING

“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

5. CHRISTA HOOP EARRING

“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

6. MYRA NECKLACE

A firm favourite at NAJO HQ thanks to its edgy two-tone arced tubing hung with black cord. “Contemporary and unmissable.”-Tash

Tash, Anna and Maija's picks

7. ULLA EARRING IN SILVER, ROSE & YELLOW

“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.

8. BETA EARRINGS

“The oversized chain links are on-trend without being fussy. These earrings are equally at home updating a little black dress or a Breton stripe t-shirt.” -Ruby

9. VIDA LOCKET NECKLACE

“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.
