Delicate and precious, discover our Skyfall Collection for her for feminine pieces with a spiritual touch. Find dainty pieces perfect for layering or bold pieces to be worn solo. Try our Hamsa Hand or Evil Eye pieces for protection, the Wishbone necklace for luck, or our Panther Ring as a statement piece.
HOW TO LAYERWe’re currently crushing on dainty layers for her. Mix and match different materials, such as our Skyfall Evil Eye or Hamsa Hand Bracelet, with a bold bangle like the Stud Bangle, Panther Bangle, or Snake Bangle. Personalize your look by throwing in one of our beaded bracelets in the mix. Preferably with smaller beads so that it doesn’t overtake the other pieces. Mixing metals is OK too – gold paired with silver can help one another stand out even more. Take your personalization even further by designing your own Nialaya Classic Beaded Bracelet in our iDesign app.

IF COLOR ISN’T YOUR THING
If colorful accessories are not your cup of tea, not to worry! The great thing about warmer spring days is that you actually get to show off your jewelry, as you don’t need to layer up in sweaters and coats anymore – this is why we love spring so much!! A stack of black and grey jewelry will look great with rolled up sleeves or a plain tee – day to night, casual to suited. A darker stack works for every occasion. Shop some black and grey looks below.
MIX N’ MATCH
The secret to a great spring wrist stack is to layer different textures and styles. For example one or two different beaded bracelet, with a leather and maybe even a stingray bracelet. Try pairing a python bracelet with one of our bangles for an instant elegant touch. For a more rugged feel, pair a black leather bracelet with a small beaded bracelet with lava stone or vintage silver. And for a classic, summery vibe, wear gold, tiger eye, turquoise, blue lapis or any of our other vibrant natural stones.

THE INSPIRATIONWith festival season around the corner, we’re introducing a collection of delicate, bohemian yet feminine choker necklaces for her. The collection features beaded chokers with striking Turquoise and Mother Of Pearl, a delicate gold linked choker necklace, and our leather chokers with Evil Eye and Hamsa Hand pendants – all crafted by hand in our Los Angeles studio!
THE LAYERED LOOK

Layering tons of chokers works best against a simple outfit and by pairing different textures and materials, such as a beaded choker, linked choker, and leather choker. All of our chokers also look stunning as a standalone statement if your outfit is too busy for a layered look.
TURQUOISE HEALING POWERS
Turquoise is the stone of wisdom, trust, and kindness. This stone is believed to give you strength, protection from harm, and psychic sensitivity. Turquoise is one of the oldest amulets for protection, and also a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. Turquoise takes on the characteristics of the owner and is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it.
MOTHER OF PEARL HEALING POWERSA protection stone, Mother of Pearl brings the healing power of the sea and is a stress relieving stone. It’s relaxing, soothing and calms your emotions, making them balanced and more harmonious. Mother Of Pearl allows you to express love and is helpful when it comes to decision-making and organization. See our new collection here.
THE EVIL EYE AND HAMSA HANDThe Evil Eye and Hamsa Hand are symbols used in a lot of Nialaya’s designs. They’re both signs of protection in slightly different ways. The Evil Eye is believed to protect its wearer from the negative effects of someone giving them the “Evil Eye” while The Hamsa Hand is a protection and good luck symbol, supposed to bring its wearer happiness, luck, health and good fortune.

THE INSPIRATIONNialaya Founder and Designer, Jannik Olander takes inspiration from his travels around the world when creating and designing new collections for Nialaya Jewelry. Since Olander’s first visit to Tulum in 2008, it’s always been one of his favorite destinations and a place that he visits frequently. With only a short flight away, this is the perfect tropical weekend get-away during the Los Angeles winter months.
TULUMOlander was inspired by the bohemian lifestyle and tropical colors of this beautiful coastal town in Quintana Roo, Mexico. The untouched jungle, the flour-soft white sand beaches, and the charming tree house lunch spots are some of Olander's favorite things about Tulum. Places like the Nomade Hotel, Be Spa, and Hartwood are spots that he never fails to visit during his travels, and these places were the main inspiration when making this tropical feel collection. While cycling through the Tulum jungle one night with only the moonlight to light up the dark road, he got the idea to create designs to go with this stunning town. He brought his ideas with him back to Los Angeles and crafted a unique ceramic bead that represented his image of Tulum. Upon crafting, the beads were dyed in a variety of Tulum shades and strung by hand with sterling silver in the Nialaya workshop in Los Angeles.
LAYER UPThe Tulum bracelets are great stacking pieces due to the small size of the beads. Complete your wrist game by layering your Tulum bracelet with either beaded bracelets our leather bracelets or even stack a couple of Tulum bracelets for the extra bohemian touch. They are also great ways of adding a subtle pop of color to everyday looks, as well as the must-have piece for all your vacations!Discover and shop our Tulum Collection here

SARTORIAL BRACELETS ELEGANCE
Whether elegant and tailored are terms and looks that you live by, or if you just dress up for special occasions, owning a few sartorial accessories is essential. The great thing about a lot of Nialaya’s designs is that they can be transitioned from day to night, and also from every-day wear those special days where you have to suit up. One or two Men’s bracelets will add the perfect amount of personality to a suited look.
The secret behind the elegant, sartorial look is pairing smooth finished, sleek designs such as our signature Anchor Bracelet next to a Nialaya Beaded Bracelet with Matte Onyx or a classic timepiece. Also try a pop of color such as white or masculine steel grey combined with gold for a rich look that will complement any suited combination.
PULL OFF GOLD
Some men find it difficult to pull off gold or find it to be too flashy. However, for a top-notch tailored, sartorial look, gold is key! The best way to wear gold in a subtle way is to dress in colors that will complement the gold in a way that the gold is toned down. Colors such as white, navy blue, or even a nice print will add the perfect balance to gold accessories. Try wearing a leather piece with a gold lock rather than a full gold beaded bracelet if you feel like the luminous gold takes over the whole look. It’s all about getting used to it!
SILVER AND SARTORIAL
If you still find it too difficult to pull off gold, silver can of course also be elegant, as long as polished. Try to stay away from our vintage plated silver pieces when going for the dressy, sartorial look. A sleek black leather bracelet with silver lock, coupled with a Nialaya Beaded Bracelet with Agate, Matte Onyx, or Blue Lapis will definitely give your look that touch of classic elegance.
