Hamburg-based jeweller Nina Kastens, who founded her brand in 2014 in New York, combines inspiration from eclectic sources, from the esoteric to the everyday. Many of her collections, for example, are rooted in powerful symbols and historic lucky charms, while others, such as her latest collection, take stimulus from the shape and glistening quality of freshly baked doughnuts. All pieces are handcrafted in the Hamburg workshop from 18-carat gold-plated sterling silver and mother-of-pearl. The pictured Face earrings play perfectly into spring/summer 2019’s statement jewellery trend, while buying from a local workshop makes them the perfect souvenir from your time in this wonderfully eclectic German city.
