What CFDA-winning Nak Armstrong can do with precious stones is nothing short of incredible. In his hands clusters of rubies appear ruched like the fabric of a dress; earrings featuring columns of aquamarine, labradorite and andalusite coil around a stem of rose gold moving with the wearer and moonstones appear to pleat delicately across the collar bone. Inspired by architecture, origami and Armstrong’s previous career in fashion, these pieces aren’t so much jewellery as wearable works of art. From experimenting with metal working to inventing proprietary gemstone cuts and stone-setting techniques, Armstrong seeks to constantly delight and surprise, in the process creating beautiful, flirtatious designs that feel fresh and modern and demand to be worn.
