How did you get into jewelry making?

I was exposed to jewelry at a young age in Vietnam. My mom had a jewelry shop, and I would make jewelry with my uncle. I was around fire and torches making jewelry starting at 7 years old.

When did you start selling jewelry in the US?

I started selling jewelry at a trunk show in Naples, Florida. I have been selling my brand for 7-8 years now.

Who was one of your first customers? 

One of my first customers was Mrs. Marriott, of Marriott hotels. She bought many of my pieces.

What brought you to Denver? 

I have traveled to so many places, and I love Denver! It’s cosmopolitan. I love it here! It’s home.

What can customers expect when they visit your showroom?

My clients who come see me are very familiar with my work. They look at and purchase my designs. I can modify designs and do custom design for customers as well.

Your stackable jewelry pieces are quite popular. What is your most popular piece?

One of my signature items is my patented interchangeable earrings. They are available on our website.

My designs are luxury, but you can wear my pieces everywhere—to work, yoga, to go out at night.  It’s effortless luxury casual jewelry.

Our jewelry is available in 120 stores nationwide, in our showroom and on our website, Nina-Nguyen.com. Our showroom is by appointment only, so please call 720.459.7664 to make an appointment.

Jet Set with Nina Nguyen Part 2

In less than a year Nina has traveled across the globe. After the big move from Florida to Colorado, Nina continued to jet set to Vietnam, Bali, Canada, Aruba, and London just to name a few. Nina is spreading Druzylicious around the world, one country at a time! Her latest trip to London produced Druzylicious photos for our Fall 2013/Winter 2014 season.

Happy 4th of July!

Here at Nina Nguyen Designs we always try to find a reason to throw a BBQ – 4th of July is the best reason yet! This is the company’s first 4th of July in Colorado, after moving from Naples, Florida last August, and we have some fun plans for the holiday. The best part about being in Colorado is the great outdoors, and we are ready to do a little bit of traveling, camping and barbequing in this beautiful state. Check out Nina’s ideal Colorado 4th of July outfit and her BBQ wishlist!

4th

 

A Haute Hippie Cowgirl Tee with camo jean shorts and a cashmere hooded sweater by James Perse (because you never know when it will get cold in Colorado) topped off with Sam Edelman Gilda Gladiator Sandals. What 4th of July outfit is not complete without some red, white and blue jewelry! Patriotically representing the USA is our Divine Lotus Coral Jade Bracelet stacked with our White Cordelia and Blue Lapis Divine Lotus, and finished off with the bold Jephette Geode Necklace.
