Q & A with Nektar De Stagni Fine Jewelry

Spike Jewelry Set by Nektar De Stagni

Transforming soft, elegant pearls into edgy and cool pieces of jewelry, Nektar De Stagni has created a fine jewelry brand that is both fun and here to stay. I'm loving everything about it, including the smiley (and non-smiley) pearl emoji dudes, whether they're in pendant form, ring form, or earrings, these provoke positivity! I personally own the spike pearl necklace in yellow gold and every time I wear it, someone always asks about it!

Nektar De Stagni has creativity in her blood and first launched her fashion brand at the young age of 21. Both the response and the passion she felt from her jewelry which also launched had led her to solely focus on NDS her fine jewelry identity and brand. Since its inception in 2008, Nektar De Stagni has become a cult favorite and is currently carried at Nordstrom, The Webster, Opening Ceremony, and several other retailers, including her own e-commerce website. We caught up with the busy entrepreneur and DJ to learn the latest:

We are currently working on expanding on the Pearl Styles to include other cute symbols like Hearts, Peace signs, and Letters/initials!

I have been designing since I was a little girl. I have sketches of jewelry as early as age 6! When I was 18 I started a ready to wear company and made jewelry accessories to complement the clothes. The jewelry was really popular and it slowly took over. In 2008 I decided to launch Nektar De Stagni Fine Jewelry as a standalone brand.

Seeing my jewelry in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Bergdorf Goodman, and worn by Rihanna is a major thrill!

I would love to one day collaborate with Tiffany & Co, and Cartier.

I love all of my jewelry, but the Smiley Emoji Pearl Ring is a great reminder to stay positive and grateful every day :)

Gem Gossip Giveaway

With every milestone comes a round of gratefulness, mixed with some disbelief. We are celebrating yet another milestone with Gem Gossip--hitting 150k followers over on Instagram! We are so thankful to each and every person who makes my feed a part of your day. 150,000 people is a lot of humans--it can seem overwhelming at first, but what is most important within that number are the individuals I've been able to connect with over the past few years. Whether it was helping with jewelry advice, or asking me to source a special piece for a special milestone, or just those who have continually messaged me with kind words--I will be forever connected and thankful!

As a way of saying thanks, I've teamed up with Celia Brown Jewelry--a brand I admire and think is doing something extraordinary right now with her unique designs.  We are offering a giveaway, one ring from the following three choices shown in the above photo.

Which would you pick if you are chosen the winner?! And how would you stack it with your current jewelry?

If you're as excited as I am for this giveaway, I'll get right to the rules on how to enter:

1. Follow @gemgossip & @celiabrownjewelry on Instagram

2. Tag at least THREE friends you think should enter! Good luck!!

Gem Gossip Turns EIGHT Years Old!

#gemgossipturns8

I don't know how this happened, but Gem Gossip celebrates another year in July! Turning 8 years old is a huge milestone--the number 8 is crazy significant in my life and I hope this will be the best year yet! I'm so thankful for all that has come out of creating Gem Gossip and I still vividly remember writing my first blog post like it was yesterday. My taste has grown, my knowledge has grown, my friends and acquaintances have grown...so much positive has come out of this blog; more than I could have ever expected.

As a way of saying thanks, I'm hosting EIGHT, yes EIGHT, giveaways all month long. I can't wait for you all to see the prizes that could be yours--I've spent a long time putting the perfect items together, with personal favorites amongst them. 

I also like to ask YOU as a reader, follower, fan...what do you want to see more of?  See less of? Please leave some feedback because I like to listen. After all, you are most important in this equation!  So let me know--you can tweet me, email me, or comment in the comment section!

Thanks everyone and cheers to turning 8!
