Alison Nagasue, a notable International Jewelry Design Award winner, introduces her copyrighted signature Gingko Collection. Fabricated in 18K Green Gold with white diamonds and in a few cases, paraiba tourmaline, with her iconic textural surface treatment with matte and polished accents resulting in a feminine unique look. Alison's attention to detail is a core characteristic of her artistry, even the backside of her gingko leaves are as beautiful as the frontside with continuance of texture. Classic yet modern, the collection has luxurious and precious materials, high craftmanship, and perfect design. Alison is obsessed with the Gingko as her primary design focus. Nature is her inspiration and additional themes in her collection include animals, flowers, birds, and leaves. She delivers a wearable, aesthetically true vision of her statement of what jewelry women like herself should wear and feel beautiful and special. Some designs are understated but with a soft sophistication and artistic design sensibility. Other designs are bolder and elegant. Any woman can identify and relate to her designs.
