Get To Know The Flamingo

Nangi drop

The Flamingo Collection is inspired by the bright pink to orange birds famous for their slender legs, long, graceful necks, large wings, and short tails. Flamingos are highly social animals, and they symbolize beauty, balance, confidence and grace.

The word ‘flamingo’ comes from the Spanish word ‘flamenco’ meaning fire, which refers to the stunning colors of their feathers.

These new Nangi creations are definitely meant to arouse your passionate side ;)

All Tourmalines and Sapphires

We’ve let us inspire by these truly amazing and elegant birds.

In Nangi’s Flamingo Collection you will find jewels in lovely pastels, ranging from bright pink and champagne to purple and even bicolored stones. The Flamingo Collection consists of tourmalines, which actually has one of the widest color ranges of any gem!

Tourmaline is also the October birthstone. The collection also features stunning sapphires, the September birthstone.

Did You Know That Not All Sapphires Are Blue?

The gemstones in the Flamingo Collection are all from Sri Lanka and are set in 14K yellow gold. Like all our Nangi pieces, they come in a timeless Scandinavian design.

Not Really Pink

It may come as a surprise to many, but flamingos aren’t born pink.

Flamingos embody the saying "you are what you eat." They are born with rather dull grey feathers, which gradually turn pink. The pink and reddish colors of a flamingo's feathers come from eating shrimps!

The pinkest birds in a colony have highest status as the bright color shows that the bird is strong and really good at finding food.

During a colony’s breeding time, a high-ranking individual flamingo will influence the rest of the flock to breed by changing its feather color to an even deeper pink, kick-starting the breeding rituals.

Flamingos Love Their Friends

Flamingos can live a long time – some have been recorded at 70 years of age, one of the longest lifespans in the bird world.

In the wild, their biggest threats are predators like eagles and baboons. Their best defense? Lots of friends!

Check out our Flamingo Collection

Flamingos are highly social birds. Flocks numbering in the hundreds may be seen in long, curving flight formations and in wading groups along the shore.

They tend to have partners for life, both when it comes to mated couples and friends. Mated couples stay together forever, build nests together and raise chicks every year. Flamingos also like hanging out with their buddies in groups of 3-6 birds.

Good on Their Own, But Better Together

Just like with humans, flamingos have understood that having buddies is good for your well-being.

Although flamingos look incredible on their own, seeing a flock of flamingos mirrored in the water surface, is surely breath-taking.

Coral & Champagne Flamingo together with our Snake Tail

Same goes for the rings in the Flamingo Collection. They are true stunners on their own, but might have a stronger effect when stacked together with other rings, for instance our snake tails.

Both the Diamond Snake Tail and the Black Sapphire Snake Tail are great companions to any piece in the Flamingo Collection.
