On a recent trip to Hong Kong I discovered a new jewelry brand I absolutely love - Nirav Modi. The brand is actually from India and only currently has one U.S. outpost in New York. Named after it's namesake Nirav Modi grew up in Antwerp. Where he learned the jewelry trade and later went on to found Nirav Modi in 2010; after, he discovered his passion for jewelry design while helping a friend with a pair of earrings. In a world of Cartier, Harry Winston, and Graff - Nirav Modi is definitely on the same level.
What struck me when I saw the jewelry was the minimal use of metal, which was exceptional but what really stood out was the design overall. Movement and light were taken into account with the design in a way I have not yet seen. The best analogy I can think of is how an athlete knows how to use their muscles Nirav Modi knows how to use light and design with diamonds.
This is a must see from the brand is the Embrace collection. Which features rings, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces of a similar design of diamond pave but what makes them exceptional is that expand without a traditional clasp. The Jasmine collection was also a personal favorite of mine which features floral-inspired designs that are unique and playful.
I would definitely all this brand to your list if you are on look-out for some new unique pieces.
