If you ask me quality is always better than quantity and that is what I think about when making every single one of my pieces. I assume they will be worn a lifetime.
The minute I fell in love with Gold. I was about eight years old spending summer at my Grandparents house, and my Grandfather who was a goldsmith jokingly asked me to help him make gold wire by hand in his home studio, he sat me down in front of the mill press, and I manually turned gold nuggets into the flat wire! This has always been one of the most memorable times of my childhood, and I create each piece of jewelry in hopes that it captures that nostalgic moment for you in your life bringing back memories of family and your loved ones to cherish forever.
I am a GIA graduate gemologist and alumni of The Fashion Institute of Technology school for design where I learned to translate my imagination into gold.
Some of you may already be familiar with NOSTALGII since I opened my studio on The Lower East Side making custom made pieces for the trendy locals many years ago, since than my little studio became somewhat of a brand with the New York City trendsetters and so I have been encouraged by my loyal clients to open up to a global market place and share my unique designs with the rest of you.
All of my diamonds are hand selected through a very tedious process ensuring each stone is of the highest cut, color and clarity, and are 100% natural conflict free mined from earth (not color, clarity treated or lab created).
Afterwards each diamond is hand set under a microscope which is known as a stone setting process called micro pave. Because it is performed under a micro scope every single diamond is perfectly secured inside the metal. It is considered to be the the most time consuming and safest way for setting diamonds.
Gold and only gold.
I exclusively use solid 14k and 18k Gold for all of my handmade pieces, Gold is the only metal that can stand the test of time, it will never tarnish or fade and always feels great wearing it. I love all colors of gold, white, yellow, and rose Gold, and I like to mix it up for an eclectic, interesting look! No matter the color, all my pieces are made of the highest quality wire and chains. I want you to enjoy your piece and come back for more!
