Verdura Jewellery

 

Fulco di Verdura was born in 1898 into Sicilian aristocracy. Growing up amongst the opulence of high society, Verdura famously squandered his inheritance, reputedly on a lavish 1799 themed costume party. As a result, he began working as a textile designer for Coco Chanel in 1927, before later moving into jewellery design. One of his most famed designs for Coco was his Byzantine style Maltese Cross bangles, which are still in production today. Verdura's opulent, creative and colourful designs flourished in the interwar years, and continue to be produced today. After his death in 1979, Verdura's archive of designs was sold alongside the business, ensuring the ongoing success of this vibrant jewellery house.
