Nileena’s fascination with designing jewellery started from a very young age as she shadowed her mother, Molly Babu, the pioneer bespoke diamond jeweller in Kerala. Once Nileena entered this filed, first under her mother at Adona Diamonds, there was no looking back. Adona Diamonds, started by Molly Babu, back in 1998, was is a pioneer manufacture and retailer of Custom Diamond jewellery in Kerala. Molly Babu worked with customers to bring their dream designs to life. Doing a bespoke piece of jewellery requires understanding the requirements of the customer and then coming up with a design and ensuring it is manufactured just the way the customer wanted it. It was when COVID-19 hit in late 2019 that Nileena with a lot of free time on hand, designed her first collection of and launched the NFJ range in June 2020. It was a runaway success with its unique designs and gave the confidence and the motivation to come up with more unique designs and growing the NFJ brand. Adona Diamonds has always believed in giving personalized services to their customers to ensure that the jewellery they buy, big or small, is nothing short of what they love. It is the mother daughter duo’s secret to having loyal customers for 20+ years.
