The Nana Bijou name comes from the designer's childhood nickname "Nana" and her mother's first name "Bijou" (which conveniently means jewelry in French) and Nana Bijou was born!
Having been raised in Beverly Hills, a fabulous city where luxury and high end fashion was part of the designer's everyday life. Natalie Sadigh discovered at a very young age that: IN ORDER TO FIT IN, YOU HAVE TO STAND OUT. As a result, she applied this motto to her everyday wardrobe and design concepts. With the lack of fashion forward jewelry designs Natalie started making jewelry for herself back in 1997. After many offers to buy her pieces right off her neck, she found her calling and established the Nana Bijou brand in 2000. With the great success of her line she decided to further her passion for jewelry by attending the Gemological Institute of America where she earned the credentials of a Graduate Gemologist, Jeweler and Designer.
After designing for a couple of years for other famous jewelry designers, she decided that it was time to go back to her roots and design pieces that are exceptional, eye-catching and chic under the Nana Bijou brand. Catering to all ages, young and mature, everyone always feels fabulous wearing Nana Bijou. As her motto goes when designing jewelry: “People will stare, so make it worth their while” - one would not have a day go by without a compliment when wearing their Nana Bijou accessories.
