About NAOS

Naos is a high-end, luxury jewelry brand focused on design and consumer consciousness in each of their pieces. Their relentless pursuit of perfection results in dynamic, disruptive, top-quality, and truly original designs. Naos celebrates love, freedom, connection, and uniqueness through each piece of jewelry.

From inception to the final creation, Naos collaborates intimately with its clients, attentively considering their preferences, influences, stories, and aspirations. This meticulous approach ensures that every piece not only embodies unparalleled quality but also encapsulates the wearer’s distinct persona and story. Therefore, throughout their eight collections, Naos embodies the adventure that was undertaken for the first time aboard the Nao ships between Europe, Asia, and America nearly 500 years ago (Nao is Spanish for the carrack sailing ships of the 15th and 16th centuries). It was during this time that a global exchange of cultures, and the creation of a new history took place. It symbolizes the connection shared between the people and with the world; as well as the freedom to explore oneself, and others throughout their life’s journey.

Naos takes great pride in their classic products, including their engagement ring collection, that feature mined diamonds as well as lab-grown diamonds, depending on client preference. Each luxury jewelry piece is designed and crafted by Naos’ creative team, working alongside enormously talented artisans who continuously strive for perfection. In addition, clients have the option of choosing pieces using recycled gold and platinum.

At the core of Naos’ philosophy resides an unswerving commitment to excellence, harmonizing quality and design to conceive jewelry that transcends temporal boundaries. Every design stands as a testament to their tireless pursuit of perfection and their dedication to pushing the frontiers of creativity. Naos ensures that each jewel becomes an emblem of distinction, allowing clients to adorn themselves with jewels that resonate with their aspirations and encapsulate the essence of refined artistry.


Transparency, innovation, technology and trust lie at the core of Naos values. For Naos, collaborating with brands that share their same values is crucial to developing their jewelry collections, while offering a unique customer experience.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
