Coffee morning with Nidha Haq - Creative director of Onyx Jewlers

Nidha Haq - Director Onyx Jewelers
We recently got a chance to interact with the very gorgeous and amazingly creative Nidha Haq, Director of Onyx jewelers as well as the Country Ambassador of International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA). Her compelling passion, knowledge and love for jewelry are worth commending. Nidha works extensively between Dubai, Nairobi and Hong Kong.

Onyx jeweler's is one of the Kenyas most reputable fine jewelry brand with outlets at the Hilton Hotel, ABC Place Wayaki Way & Villa Rosa Kempinski. They deal in Tanzanites, Tsavorites, Diamonds, Emeralds, Sapphires, Rubies & many other precious-semi precious stones. They are officially the largest, licensed mineral dealers in town, dedicated to providing quality products and services to their clients for over four decades. 

Nidha’s personal favorite stone is Tanzanite, for its distinct mesmerizing trichroic feature, which in layman's terms is the ability of a Tanzanite to change colours between red, blue and purple depending on the amount of light reflecting on it throughout the day. Tsavorites are also very close to her heart as they are found only in her home country, Kenya. The rare nature, and unique colours of Tsavorites have made them the fastest appreciating stone in the last five years.

Note: Talking of price appreciation, here is a shout out to all the jewelry enthusiasts & collectors! Now is the time to buy these two extremely rare stones as the prices have soared over the years and are expected to rise further in the future. Just to give a perspective, over the period of 5 years, Tanzanite has increased in value from $350 to $500/600 & Tsavorite from $800 to $3500 per carat for over a 5 carat size piece.

Being an ambassador for ICA, Nidha gets stones for her jewelry stores from around the globe at very competitive prices and has strong connections with many acclaimed jewelry houses world wide. All her gemstones are finest quality and most precious stones comes with international certificates. She has her own cutting facility in Arusha where an experienced workforce from Mexico, Sri Lanka, Tanzania & Kenya manufacture the most radiant cuts of these rare stones.

Nidha’s flagship store in Villa Rosa Kempinksi is like heaven for any jewelry lover. We were awestruck by practically every piece for its mesmerizing design & exquisite detailing.

This prolific jewelry designer draws her inspiration from her travel experiences and her exposure to many experienced masterminds in the field. Being a part of the ICA has given her opportunities to interact and learn from famous designers and jewelry enthusiasts worldwide. Her passion is fearless when it comes to designing unique & inventive bespoke pieces. One such example is her latest favorite creation, an ethereal pair of dangling diamond earnings. She is fond of these earrings for their fluidity & delicate elegance.

Having a workshop in Nairobi gives her clients the added advantage of customizing tiny details of the pieces to their liking.
