Nashira Arno Jewelry NYC based Latin American Designer Female Founder from Dominican Republic Luis Guillen Photo Portrait

Nashira Arno is a NYC based Latin American Designer and Female Founder originally from the Dominican Republic. 

Being the embodiment of her own muse, she uses her work as a personal outlet to express and highlight her own voice. 

For the Nashira Arno Jewelry brand, she draws inspiration from many layers of her personal life experiences; from explored and discovered places, concepts, forms and movements found in nature - but mainly from her obsession with the ocean, sunlight and the outer space. 

Thinking of every piece as an objet d'art, Nashira’s aesthetic relays on a constant search for balance and juxtaposition of ideas while keeping the focus on reinventing the classics with a modern contemporary approach. This formula, combined with her fascination for minerals and gemstones, makes her aesthetic ethereal and feminine with a small punch of bold.

Through this project, Nashira aims to bring beauty and joy to the world while empowering women and supporting artisan communities. Every collection piece is handmade local and/or in partnership with an artisan around the globe. 

Based on her gemological studies and cultural, artistic and history explorations, she believes that the most seductive thing in existence is the beauty of nature as it speaks to us without words. It attracts us.

“ In their undeniable beauty, gemstones and precious metals are given from the earth like flowers to be admired.  They carry earth’s energy, like the woman that wears them”

Her work has been featured in some of the most iconic fashion and design publications including Ignant, Vanity Fair and Glamour Magazine. 

Nashira Arno's jewelry pieces are made all the more timeless by their simplicity. The beautifully crafted accessories use precious gems that not only catch the eye of the viewer, but also highlight the grace of the wearer, making them must haves for the modern sartorialist.
