Born in former Yugoslavia, Nikollë Radi grew up in Croatia with his family’s jewelry shop as his playground. While experimenting with precious metals and gems there, he learned the ancient techniques from his Albanian heritage. He had fallen in love with jewelry making and pursued it further. Attending jewelry schools, he perfected his skills and understanding of theory. In 2006 he relocated to New York where he was introduced to platinum and it properties. He filters all through the vibrant city and makes his collection in a combination that allows him to take advantage of fineness and strength that is platinum, and accent it with soft details of gold.
