TO DESIGNER MICHAEL DACOSTA, jewellery is more than decoration, it’s an expression of creativity and individuality.
Recognized as a designer of custom jewellery for discerning clients around the globe, the award-winning artisan and Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain is cited in Masters of Jewellery Design in Canada as one of the most accomplished in his field.
Michael has always been inspired by the natural world and its influence on design. He began working on Novon Collection with the idea of designing something beautiful, well made and affordable that featured natural elements in the forefront. Influenced by his work, his son and daughter Zachary and Sophie, joined the process lending their expertise to compliment the brand.
Novon Collection is based on the four Elements – Earth, Air, Fire and Water – and our close connections to nature. The icons created to represent those Elements is at the heart of the design philosophy behind the brand. Each of the elements are represented by ethically and sustainably sourced natural gemstones that hold specific properties associated to the individual Elements.
The key feature of our customizable jewellery is the patented clasp design. Each piece is modular, allowing the wearer to adjust or modify the look of their jewellery to suit any occasion. Inspired by the elements, uniquely yours. Novon.
We live in a world where connections matter. Despite the constant distraction of our daily obligations, we all should find time to reconnect. Whether it’s our family, friends, or the natural world around us – our connections make us stronger. We believe that these links between one another help define us.
Our jewelry is designed to remind us that we’re all connected. Our choices each play a unique role in shaping the world – none insignificant. Our belief is that these pieces will reflect your individuality and represent the connections you hold dear.
The Elements; Earth, Air, Fire and Water, are historically connected to Zodiac signs and certain gemstones; each with specific properties that are said to enhance our wellbeing. Our stones are naturally sourced, collected ethically and adhere to environmentally sustainable methods.
Novon was inspired by the design philosophy of the “Golden Mean”. Based on the Golden Mean or “Phi”— a recurring mathematical ratio that is found in nature; from the spiral of a seashell to the swirl of a galaxy – represents a symbol of balance and harmony. We recognized that these connections are profound and should be celebrated. The Novon collection offers jewelry inspired by the Elements — uniquely yours.
Our jewelry utilizes a patented clasp system that represents those connections we cherish. Our system gives you the ability to match an outfit or suit your mood throughout the day. Each piece is fabricated in tarnish resistant .925 sterling silver and meticulously finished to our high standards. An infinite range of possibilities exists. Using the collection’s natural stones and varying lengths of chain, creating necklaces, pendants and bracelets can be done with ease — and changed in an instant.
It is ever more crucial to find ways that will preserve our natural spaces. Novon has partnered with Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) by pledging 1% of total proceeds of sales to that organization. NCC is the nation’s leading not-for-profit, private land conservation organization, working to protect our most important natural areas and the species they sustain.
