nehita02LOS ANGELES, Mar 25, 2010 / FW/ — Born in South Africa, jewelry designer MonaLisa drew inspiration from her hometown to create the NEHITA fine jewelry collection that in some ways also sums up her native country, elegant with a touch of attitude.

Mounting diamonds and other natural gems like rubies, sapphires, emeralds, citrine, amethyst, tourmaline, pericot, topaz and lolite, in a plethora of colors in the finest silver and gold, MonaLisa creates jewelry that are timeless, wearable accessories that capture the sophisticated woman who isn’t afraid to be modern, fun and sexy.

Monalisa’s passion for design began during her travels to her hometown of South Africa. The vivid images and rich colors of her hometown captured her and eventually led her to a big shift, from lawyer to designer.

After mastering her craft at the world renowned Gemological Institute of America, she launched the premier NEHITA collection in the Fall of 2007.

Pricepoints run between $295 -$3995. Custom pieces are available upon request.
