The uniquely talented jewelry designer Nava Zahavi has a distinctive reflection of the cultural and environmental influences she experienced in her youth, as well as in her extensive world travels. The distinguished Byzantine characteristics in her work can be traced to ancient Egypt and Greece, while her use of colourful stones reflects the brilliance of nature surrounding her: Aquamarine represents the sea and the sky, Citrine and Rutilated stones evoke the sandy beaches, and Carnelian depicts the warm sun.
“When designing my jewelry, I use the finest quality semi-precious stones, wrapped in 24 karat gold as if embraced by the sun. I aspire to create designs of enduring beauty…..designs that speak of ancient history, yet maintain a fresh, contemporary feel.”
Nava has been designing jewelry for fifteen years, and enjoys a well-established reputation around the world. Nava’s jewelry can be found in designer boutiques, fine department stores such as Neiman Marcus and Sak's Fifth Avenue also through leading catalogs such as Sundance. Magazine features include Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Marie Claire, Lucky, In Style and W Magazine.
“What I love most about my jewelry is bringing beauty into the lives of those who wear it. It’s about sharing my culture and experience with others through art, color and texture, infused with a calming sense of timelessness”.
