A Nomadic existence

A story to tell through a color, a shape, or even a symbol

About the founder

 
Being born and raised in a multi-cultural environment and living the life of a nomad have been the defining influences in the style of Daniela D’Agostino. Born in Genoa in 1980 into an Italian-Venezuelan family, she lived in almost every continent by the time she was a teenager. She then settled in Florida with her family, where she attended university and met the love of her life. She is now established in Geneva, Switzerland, where she lives with her husband and two beautiful children.
 
Today, Daniela continues her never-ending journey in search of inspiration for her jewellery designs. She is not only influenced by her travels, but also by her lifelong passions for art, design, architecture, photography, literature, spiritual symbolism and nature. She has developed an eye for what taste-makers globally are in search for – effortless elegance, impeccable craftsmanship, and innovative design. Perhaps the most essential source of inspiration for her, however, is the inner strength and sensuality of women – something that is imbued within each of her designs.  
 
Each piece is designed in Switzerland and hand crafted in Lebanon and Italy with an international soul, using beautiful stones gathered from different places around the world. Behind each one of her creations lies a story to tell – a color, a shape, a symbol that is evocative of a particular place or memory.  An amulet that travels with you on a special journey through time and space. A vivid universe inspired by vibrant tropical colors and simultaneously characterized by timeless Italian elegance. Jewellery that provides women with confidence and a chic sense of style. The perfect match for International trend-setters.
 
What Daniela’s designs offer you is an all-encompassing explosion of styles and artistic influences from around the world. Nomad Jewels are custom crafted using 18 karat gold, diamonds and a wide variety of gemstones. These are timeless but simultaneously modern pieces tailored for confident, audacious women who are not afraid to take risks and embark on life-changing adventures.
 
Imagine the colourful and warm lava flowing from a volcano in St Lucia. The cobble alleys of Panarea blossoming with bougainvillea flowers. The smell of jasmine and lemons in Capri. The intense and radiant colors of Frida Kahlo’s paintings. The surreal stories of Isabel Allende. The picturesque snowy scenery of the Swiss Alps. The ever-watching eye amulet found in the streets of Beirut.

MY UNIVERSE - INSPIRATIONS

Throughout the ages the fascination with that which is strange and unknown has always driven our desire to travel and uncover the remnants of the past, each rediscovery making them new again. 
 
Ancient stories brought to life with timeless Italian elegance.
 
A time, a place, a person.
Every creation has a story to tell, be it through the contours of its shape or how its colors reflect the light – each is evocative of a memory. On the island of St Lucia a primeval volcano bubbles crimson hot lava and in Mexico city the hues of Frida Kahlo’s paintings still dance. Thousands of miles away in Panarea magenta bougainvilleas line the cobblestone alleys, while in Capri the scent of jasmine and lemons sweeten the air. It is this mesh of colors, people and locations that inspire the design of our pieces.
 
Embracing Wabi-Sabi
 
In nature everything is as it should be. Absent of perfection, it is perfect. The Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi embraces this imperfection seeing it not as a blemish, but rather the mark of an object’s journey into being, and the serenity that comes from its age. This reminds us that nothing is permanent, and to cherish the simplicity around us. Wabi-sabi engages simple, asymmetric forms as seen in the Namib bracelet. At first glance it appears to be a simple yet contemporary reinterpretation of the classic tennis bracelet. Yet, upon closer inspection we see the sand dunes of the desert landscape in its contours. Diamonds of various shapes and cuts placed irregularly along the cuff transport us to the mysterious desert. Inspired by nature, these unique pieces of jewellery are ever changing, and challenge the viewer to look closer, taking them on a journey of discovery.
 
Women healing through stones. 
 
The power of women is constantly being expressed around us as their already complex roles in society continue to morph. This has been made possible by women’s continued work to empower and lift one another up, proving that female rights are human rights. The bonds of sisterhood through the ages have been protective talismans in the journey to equality, providing healing and care for the soul. Adaptable yet resilient, their strength and beauty shines from within as they evolve through life. This strength of spirit is imbued in our stones, themselves charged with healing and strengthening energies of their own.
