Nialaya Jewelry is an American designer jewelry company founded in 2009 by Danish designer Jannik Olander. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.
While visiting a coastal city in India, Jannik met a local shaman named Nialaya who encouraged him to pursue his dreams and stop chasing monetary gain. Jannik profoundly reflected upon this, and upon returning from his trip he developed a jewelry company deeply rooted in spirituality and the promotion of energy healing. He named the company ‘Nialaya’ as a tribute to the man who provided him with life-changing insight. Jannik began designing and creating beaded macrame necklaces and bracelets in the garage of his Hollywood Hills home. The slogan ‘Handmade in Hollywood’ was then developed, as each piece of jewelry was strung together by hand without the use of machinery or mass production. Each precious and semi-precious stone was used to stimulate spiritual healing powers; each finished item was then purified with a cleansing sage.
