J.J.'s Gems... We've got a Nak


Marissa Collections' lovely jewelry expert and buyer Jennifer "J.J." McCurry let's us in on her favorite jewelry trends and pieces and what's in store for the future of Marissa Collections Fashion Fine Jewelry selection.
Innovative but with a nod to antiquity, one jewelry trend I’m most excited about is based on the fusion of Deco and Roman themes. Crafted in semiprecious and precious stones, as well as a variety of colors and metals, mosaic inspired pieces proved to be a driving force in the jewelry world. In particular I was impressed with Nak Armstrong’s lightweight and modern interpretation of the mosaic featured at the Couture Jewelry Show in Las Vegas.
His earrings, necklaces and bracelets carry a lot of impact but maintain their femininity and are a technical work of art. Formerly a part of Nak Anthony, Armstrong is already carving out a niche for himself with the eponymous jewelry line he debuted at Couture.
The pieces are bold, glamorous and showcase the gemstone in a completely different way than his work with Nak Anthony. I cannot wait to see the response to these truly beautiful masterpieces when we bring Nak Armstrong into our family of fashion fine jewelers at Marissa Collections.
