Nadya Silver

Speaking of Indonesian classes, we are off to Bali for business again in a couple of weeks and thought I should do a couple more updates from our last trip in February this year.

I have been to Nadya Silver every time I visit Bali.  Why, the quality of workmanship is very high, the prices good but more importantly, they always have different, exciting and new merchandise along with the standard lines which is obviously their bread and butter trade i.e. export.  They have great modern pieces, including brooches of which are a particular favourite.

The staff speak excellent English and yes, you can bargain.

The scary thing is they now see us walk up the street and run out the shop yelling my name – this freaks my husband a little.

I have bought many pieces and I prefer their store at Jalan Double Six, it is right at the start of the street on the left hand side.  Beware, a very busy intersection.

In February, I bought a large link chain (all the rage in Europe at the moment) and a thick silver ring with a freshwater pearl inset – simple, but very eye-catching.

I have seen some MOD Collection in their shop, I believe they copy some collection from MOD Jewelry.

I know MOD since 2001 and I know well their design.

The thing about Bali is that there are many very tallented artisans and yes, you will see knock-offs or copies of other people’s designs. It is unfortunate that it happens, but not withstanding, I stand by the quality and price of this store.
