Nataly Aponte’s signature matchstick collection was created to ignite the inner flame that exists within all of us. The inspirational collection of Nataly’s luxury jewelry line incorporates the concept of lighting a fire, composed with the finest metals and gemstones.
“We all have an internal fire that lives inside of us.
Handmade in NYC and LA.
Nataly Aponte is a luxury jewelry line handcrafted from 18-karat gold, sterling silver, diamonds, and gemstones. Each piece in the collection is inspired by Nataly’s awareness to the inner fire that lives within, and the sound and smell of striking a match. The initial spark between two people, personal ambitions, lust, and love all begin with a connection. This is the moment when “Two Create Fire”.
