Brazilian Gemstones & Custom Heirloom Jewelry

I am really pleased to have a new supplier of precious gem stones here in Bali. This valuable contact , Rafael, is bringing the stones in directly from the mines in the Northeast of his native country Brazil. The beautiful stones on offer consist of emeralds, diamonds, paraiba tourmalines, aquamarines, citrines, amethysts and crysoberyl's to name a few. There are also many more on offer.

Rafael also has beautiful black/green/grey A grade quality 8-9mm Tahitian pearls which he acquired on a working holiday there.

All these stones and pearls are of excellent quality at amazingly affordable prices!

Custom Heirloom Jewelry

In November I returned to Bali from a quick business trip to Jakarta where I met with certain Ambassadors wives to discuss custom jewelry work and also some maintenance on precious family heirloom pieces. We spent quite some time designing custom rings featuring emeralds and diamonds which were supplied by my new Brazilian contact Rafael. The ladies absolutely loved the gems and I am planning a return visit early in the New Year as the stones were so well received the ladies are already planning to have me design more custom pieces for them.

BWA Bazaar

While in Jakarta I also attended the BWA Bazaar. My collections were a sell out with the most popular items being from the Root, Kupu Kupu (Butterfly) and Carved Lotus Collections. Charms, always popular, were a big seller too.

Flashback to Fashion Week Sept NYC

NYC in september was wonderful, catching up with family, friends and making new contacts. I especially enjoyed a weekend in the Hamptons with my friend Eric Pettigrew who has begun his homeopathic practise. Time was tight so the people I didn't catch up with on this trip I plan to make up for on my next round.

I had the great fortune to connect with Soma Choudhury of Leela Showroom in Soho. We met on and stayed in touch. Luckily for me she fell in love with my new Butterfly and Root Collections and is now representing me in the States and Europe.
She will be presenting the Nagicia Collection to Buyers and Press in NYC - Nov 2 - 11 and in Los Angeles - Nov 17 - 18. For more info please call Soma or Giorgio at 212.334.6865
