Designer Helan Nona’s eponymous brand, Helannona, is infused with passion. From the age of 16, Helan was drawn to the art of jewelry design, creating a bespoke bracelet for her grandmother that later became the catalyst for her future profession. Even while studying for her law degree, she was drawn to her craft, and continually studied the history of jewelry while making pieces to wear or to give as gifts to her most cherished loved ones.
Today, Helan strives to become a prominent name in crafting custom-made jewelry for all ages, and for both women and men to enjoy for any occasion. Intended to be passed on from mother to daughter, and from father to son, her pieces evoke a certain lifestyle through their use of premium materials, unique designs and exceptional craftsmanship.
From dramatic drop earrings to cleverly constructed cocktail rings to bold necklaces and romantic pendants, the Helannona collection has a range of styles to suit any sensibility. Her men’s collection features handsome rings incorporating colored gemstones such as emerald, tourmaline and ruby, as well as bold pops of enamel. Each piece is handcrafted to Helan’s exacting standards.
Hailing from Miami, Florida, Helan joins the JA New York Community in the Summer event’s New Designer Gallery (NDG).
