South African born designer, Niala Orsmond, is known for her innovative designs and political concepts.
1998 Niala studied Fine Arts and Jewelry Design at the University of Stellenbosch and experimented with pushing boundaries and being provocative.

Her graduation show in 2001 caused a jewelry sensation as she won the title of best student of the year at the South African Jewelry Council's Jewellex Awards.

In 2002/03 the young designer worked in London for Shaun Leane, known for his collaboration with Alexander McQueen, Swarovski, Boucheron, Marc Jacobs and many more.

Niala Orsmond has been awarded a number of scholarship for her work in Munich, Germany. There she specialised in conceptual jewelry design, fashioning her first efforts from bits and pieces of her new German surroundings combined with her African roots.

After exhibiting her work in Modern museums and galleries across several continents, she established her own luxury designer jewelry company, Niala∞, in 2009.

Niala∞ embraces the enchanted world of sophisticated glamour and luxury. The unique pieces are made of 18ct gold and in selected combinations with the best stones that come from the earth, diamonds and other precious gemstones.
