New 18K Rose Gold Collection!

Nina Designs is pleased to announce our new 18K Rose Gold Plate Collection! Featuring our most popular iconic styles, each piece has a Nano-polymer coating to protect the surface and retard oxidation.

Rose Gold has long been a popular choice for Bridal and Valentine’s Day Jewelry as its soft, warm color symbolizes love. It is this rich rosy golden hue that makes Rose Gold so special and sought after. Rose gold contains as much gold as yellow gold but is slightly pinker in color. This warm pink tone is created by increasing the copper-colored alloys normally found in gold and decreasing the silver-colored alloys. Rose gold is available in both 14K and in 18K.

Our vermeil style gold plate is 40 micro inches of 98.5% pure gold plated over sterling silver with a fine layer of nickel in between. For Rose Gold, we add a thin layer of 18K Rose Gold, finished with a Nano-polymer coating to protect the surface and retard oxidation. For more information about our Gold Plating Process, visit our Gold FAQ

Shop the entire collection of Rose Gold Charms, Findings and essential Jewelry Supplies! Need more bling? Many of these styles are also available in Shiny 14K Gold Filled Plate, Satin 24K Gold Vermeil Style Plate, and Solid 14K Gold!

 More new Rose Gold styles coming soon!

So tell us, what styles would you like to see in this beautiful, warm rosy color?

Discover the Symbolism of Spirit Animals!

Have you ever felt drawn to a certain animal? Felt a special kinship or deep connection to a wild beast, tiny insect, or cold blooded reptile? Do certain creatures seem to constantly cross your path? Maybe it’s your Spirit Animal calling out to you! A Spirit Animal or Power Animal represents the “life force” or soul of an animal, which appears to humans – through their dreams, meditations and in their waking life – in order to share their wisdom. The belief in Spirit Animals has its origins mainly in Native American Tribes, although similar spiritual practices can be found in other cultures. There are differences within each tribe or culture on how they interpret and incorporate Spirit or “Totem Animals” into their lives. In Native American cultures, The Totem Animal would generally appear as one single animal that acts as a guide and protector for humans throughout their entire life. Modern cultures often believe that you can have many Spirit Animals and they can change daily.

Spirit Animal NL 1

Nina Designs has created an inspiring line of Spirit Animal Pendants perfect for creating Talisman Jewelry that holds spiritual meaning for the wearer. We chose to feature seven of our favorite creatures: The Bear, The Cobra, The Crocodile, The Hawk or Falcon, The Elephant, The Tiger, and The Wolf. Each has special attributes that we hope will stir your creativity and connect with you personally.

Cobra Blog

The Cobra: Waiting, Pausing, Going inwards to decide.

With its ability to shed its skin, the cobra represents transformation, rebirth and new beginnings. Having this power animal in your life portents a great transition is on its way through new opportunities and growth.

Bear Blog

The Bear: Waking Up, Beginning Anew.

Symbolically, the bear holds many contradictions. Their dual nature symbolizes both the warrior and the nurturer. It can be fierce, teaching us to stand against adversity, take action and be bold. At times of hibernation it is tranquil, emphasizing a time for solitude, self-reflection, and rest.

Crocodile Blog

The Crocodile: Resting, Collecting Energy, Cooling Off.

The crocodile has inhabited the earth for millions of years and are considered to be the keepers and protectors of all knowledge and ancient wisdom. Having this power animal in your life signifies an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the world around you. Gliding along the water, they are concealed from view with just their eyes peeking above the surface, teaching us about patience, emotional depth and resourcefulness.

Elephant Blog

The Elephant: Unstoppable, Auspicious & Wise.

Revered for its power and strength, the elephant symbolizes dignity, peace, intelligence, and longevity. In the herd, the older elephants protect and care for the young, regardless of whether it is their offspring or another’s. In this way, the spirit of the elephant encourages loyalty and fidelity in our relationships with family and friends.

Hawk Blog

The Hawk or Falcon: Watchful, All-Seeing & Fate’s Messenger

 Symbolically, the falcon is the messenger of the spirit world and the “unseen”. They were believed to have resided in the Upperworld with the spirits of the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars. The Falcon’s ability to soar to great heights assists with gaining a new perceptive, allowing one to see and understand things clearly by providing focus and sharp vision.

Wolf Blog

The Wolf: Protector of Family & Tribe

Symbolically, the wolf encourages a deeper connection with and trust in one’s intuition. With a razor sharp intelligence and a strong desire for freedom, the wolf inspires you to live life to the fullest and pursue your dreams.

Tiger Blog

The Tiger: Sensuality, Receptivity & Lunar Forces

The tiger symbolizes courage and willpower. Having this animal in your life encourages you to harness your inner strength and trust your intuition to help you overcome challenges. The speed and agility of the tiger reminds us to tackle life’s problems quickly and passionately. Don’t hesitate… pounce! Let this tiger unleash a new power or passion within you.

for allowing us to feature her lovely Animal Spirit Cards in our Jewelry Photos.

The Beauty of Batik Scarves, Jewelry & Woodwork

Looking for a beautiful keepsake to gift this holiday season? Give a gorgeous handmade scarf, jewelry box, or piece of jewelry, carefully crafted by skilled artisans. Our collection of hand-batiked jewelry and gifts are sure to be conversation starters. Unique, complex, and one of a kind designs are the result of a special technique passed down for centuries from artist to artist.

Batik is an intricate process, all done by hand, to produce these beautiful and unique patterns. Wax resist is applied in thoughtful patterns and designs to wood, fabric, etc., and then dyed. More wax is applied, and the material is dyed again, and so on. The finished result after removing the wax resist, is a bright mixture of colors, patterns, and one of a kind works of art!

The same idea is used on our gold batik pieces. Resist is added to where silversmiths want to prevent gold plating from attaching. After plating, when the protective resist is removed, the result is a sparkling, two-tone jewelry piece. A true labor of love, for many of these artists have been taught by their elders, and continue to create art with true passion.
