Pearl of Africa

Pearl of Africa

For magnificence, for variety of form and colour, for profusion of brilliant life — bird, insect, reptile, beast — for vast scale — Uganda is truly “the Pearl of Africa” ~ Winston Churchill

Nakibirango – London went home to shoot our new Six of Six collection for the new autumn winter season. We teamed up with Papa and his team of beautiful models to capture the essence of our brand and the beauty of Uganda.

This collection takes inspiration from the polygon with its six edges and six vertices. Found throughout nature and is considered a symbol of harmony and balance. You will even find the hexagon at the core of mankind, it can be found in the structure of our DNA. 

Ancient sages incorporated the hexagon in their spiritual geometry and of course our beloved Bee uses the hexagon for their hives. 

The collection offers 4 Cuff designs, stackable rings and fancy hoop earrings. With our cuffs we have introduced four muses we believe align to each cuff design. Which one are you! 

Beatrice is for our sassy, witty and enlivened woman. She is full of song, connected and enchanting

Kiri is for our spiritual woman, the wanderer and wild woman. With her open heart and wise soul

Leona is for our Lioness, the quiet but fearless woman; the mother, the sister, the friend, strong and loyal; she is the sun, the goddess the warrior

Hex is for our woman who celebrates her independence, strength and feminine beauty. Say it loud and say it proud!

We will also be launching a Heroes cuff for our kings. This autumn is all about change and reinvention, so why not shake up your style and Jewellery box with an exquisite, luxury, designer piece from Nakibirango-London.

The Wisdom of Style

The Wisdom of Style

Pairing Up the Sophia Cuff and the Sophia Necklace

 Inspired by the Greek Goddess of wisdom, the Sophia Cuff and Sophia Necklace make the perfect combination of elegant harmony.

The unique design of the Sophia Necklace draws inspiration from a beautiful marble staircase that caught the artistic eye of our creative director Naki Kaddu.

The sequence of curves and the solitary circle that binds the necklace allude to confident steps leading towards greater heights.

The Sophia Cuff embraces the same curved philosophy, but with concentric circles and ellipses that gracefully embrace your wrist. It’s modern in its style, yet timeless in its design, utilizing the same fundamental geometric properties that can be found ubiquitously among ancient Greek ruins.

In Greek mythology, wisdom is the feminine goddess Sophia, and both pieces celebrate this with an elegant design that evokes feelings of unity and harmony. Pairing up the Sophia Cuff and the Sophia Necklace will not only combine their design elements, but also convey a sense of completeness that will complement your stylistic plans.

The gentle curves of the necklace compliment the concentricity of the cuff, creating a balanced and tasteful combination that uplifts your style. Both pieces are available in sterling silver or 18k gold plated silver.

Daphne; a Gift for the One You Love

Daphne; a Gift for the One You Love

Inspired by Roman Poet Ovid’s magnum opus, Metamorphoses, the Daphne Earrings celebrate the transformational power of love. 

The triple drop crescent design brings an undeniable touch of elegance to each earring, and its symmetry alludes to classical standards of beauty.

Daphne is also the protagonist in one of the most stunning marble sculptures ever made, Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne. Her name literally means “Laurel”, as the goddess gave her name to the tree after taking its form at the end of her tale of transformation.

Drawing forth the powerful imagery of Daphne’s story, the earrings are the perfect gift for your loved one. They signify belonging and exclusion, inviting the one you love to explore and redefine the boundaries of love and identity.

The Daphne Earrings are available in sterling silver and 18ct gold plated silver. Their unique design and unmistakable quality earned the pair a feature in Vogue, alongside several other affordably luxurious jewellery pieces.
