    About Verdura Brand

    Verdura jewelry never misses a chance to strike you with boldness, pure elegance, and irreverent style. Each Verdura jewel is telling the story of perfection and creativity. But the very first story of the brand’s recognition started with Verdura Maltese cross.
    In 1927 Coco Chanel met Fulco Santostefano della Cerda – the future Duke of Verdura – and it was a match made in heaven. Chanel hired Fulco as a textile designer and later appointed him to redesign her vast jewelry collection. Among multiple pieces there was a Maltese Cross that was rumored as given to Chanel by Russian Grand Duke Dmitri. Another source of inspiration for the Maltese Cross idea was the Byzantine mosaic of Empress Theodora in the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. The tiles of mosaic looked completely the opposite comparing the Art Deco style prevailing in jewelry design during that time. Being captivated by that image and recalling himself growing up close by the Amalfi coast and the Island of Malta, Fulco came up with a white enamel irregular shape cuff generously garnished with the bright color stone cabochons. This look is still one of Verdura’s most recognizable designs.
    Verdura jewelry design manages to marry brand’s whimsical feel with the clean sophisticated shapes. Oversized cuffs, colored stone cocktail rings and beaded necklaces by Verdura are chic,

    About amber jewelry 

    Amber jewelry holds a unique place in the world of gemstones. It’s a fossilized tree resin, often millions of years old, that has transformed into a gemstone over time. It’s an organic gem, meaning it’s the product of biological processes. Amber’s warm, golden hues range from pale yellow to deep orange and brown.
    Amber jewelry is widely valued for its unique appearance. We appreciate the organic, one-of-a-kind quality of amber, which can contain elements from prehistoric times. This gem is believed to have various benefits and symbolic meanings. Traditionally, amber is associated with healing and protection. It has been used in folk medicine for centuries, thought to have soothing effects and promoting overall well-being. With its warm color, amber is also associated with positivity and inspiration.
    Being a naturally occurring material, amber can be sourced in a more environmentally friendly way compared to some mined gemstones. This makes it a great option for jewelry makers and buyers who are conscious of sustainability.
