Jewellery designer Nathalie van der Meer is the face behind fine jewellery brand, NOX Amsterdam. After working many years as an entrepreneur in the nine streets of Amsterdam and the Rivierenbuurt, where she sold various fashion and Dutch jewellery labels, she figured it was time for a change. She has always dreamed of creating her own brand and designing became a new challenge for her.
NOX Amsterdam signifies bold design, colour and shape, designed to make a statement. Not for a specific woman or a specific time, but for women who show and express themselves. Nathalie works with 18ct gold-plated gold on 925 sterling silver, as well as gemstones such as hydro quartz.
In the handmade earrings, the stones are combined ton-sur-ton, or with a complementary tint. “When the length of the earring corresponds with the upper jawline, as well as that the colour matches the skin tone and eyes then most of the times, everything falls in place. Not only will she be sold, but so will I” thus Nathalie.
Let yourself be inspired by NOX Amsterdam and find the finishing touch that completes your look. We happily provide you with personal advice!
GEMSTONE AND HYDRO QUARTZ
NOX Amsterdam works with 18ct gold-plated gold on 925 sterling silver together with gemstones such as hydro quartz in every one of her designs. High quality imitation gemstones are being made from hydro quartz, which are difficult to distinguish with the real hydro quartz. They are made by hand, which is a prolonged and complicated process and serves the quality of the stone justice.
FAIR PRODUCTION AND COOPERATION
The NOX jewellery is crafted in a workplace located in Jaipur, India, where they are being made by one partner, who has years of experience in the processing of gemstones and the making of hydro quartz. Sometimes Nathalie adopts his favorite designs. The collaboration is based on trust, experience, and is fair trade, resulting in NOX Amsterdam achieving the best results.
The earrings from NOX Amsterdam are not made for a specific woman, but for all the women that put on a big smile when looking at themselves in the mirror and notice that a bigger earring does more than just decorate the ear. It lifts and lights you up. When the length of the earring corresponds with the upper jawline, as well as that the colour matches the skin tone and eyes then it’s a perfect match!
In the total look, the jewellery sets the tone and thereby determines the overall appearance. The long elegant NOX necklaces are a supplementary fashion item and will give your look the finishing touch. For every outfit a matching necklace, but they are also perfect to combine with the NOX Earrings. Check out our “shop the look” section for some extra inspiration!
