Nessa’s line of fine jewelry combines natural elements and organic forms with high-quality gemstones and precious metals. Each stone has a story to tell and a deep connection to a specific place on Earth.
Unique- You are special, so why wear mass produced jewelry? Each piece of Nessa jewelry is completely unique. You’ll never bump into someone wearing the same one! And if you don’t see one you love, we can work with you to create one that is perfect for you.
Natural- In this age of perfectly filtered photos on social media showcasing your ‘aspirational lifestyle,’ the boldest statement you can make is - “This is me and I’m not perfect!” Nessa uses stones taken straight from nature with all their inclusions and flaws, which is what makes them so beautiful. These complex forms are enhanced with inset sparkling diamonds and other precious gems.
Timeless- Wear them alone for a subtle look or layered together for a more dramatic effect. Nessa’s one-of-a-kind pieces can be worn with a suit for work, t-shirt and jeans or dressed up for an evening event.
They can move seamlessly from day to evening and can be worn by men and women.
