Award-winning designer Nadia Neuman's work expresses individuality. She enjoys exploring materials that provide edge, but is also adept at organic forms.
Custom, wearable art is the calling card of Mondial by Nadia, an atelier that combines the finest natural quality diamonds and gemstones with sustainable precious metals.
Nadia Neuman’s parents started their business, Mondial, half a century ago, and apparently her plan was to avoid the family fold. It was only after being lauded with awards for her designs that she realised her métier. She is proudly carrying forth her family’s long-held reputation for honesty and integrity, while forging her own aesthetic imprint.
Nadia has won a clutch of awards such as the Harper’s BAZAAR Diamond Guild Australia Jewellery Award, and the Australian Jewellery Award. Her ethical jewellery commitment is particularly recognised with the Master Jewellery Award in the Sustainability category as part of Rio Tinto’s Global Design Competition.
Mondial by Nadia rallies for the demands of a one-of-a-kind piece, from choosing a remarkable stone, to sketch pad, and the final unveiling, in a historic shopping destination known for showcasing Australian craftsmanship.
In this intimate setting, the jewellery design process is gently guided by the expertise of some of Australia’s leading gemologists and master craftsman. Whatever the style or mood of the commission, the stone is the entry point more often than not, with intuitive handling of the natural material a prime consideration.
Mondial by Nadia provides dynamic wedding jewellery creations, with men also well catered for with dress rings. The jewellery talent declared her support for same-sex marriages in 2014 with the Marriage Equality ring, with profits from its sale directed to lobbying efforts to make the unions a reality in Australia. It was the first time an Australian luxury jewellery brand has actively promoted the issue.
