Collection: Verdura Jewelry

Born in Sicily in 1898, Duke Fulco di Verdura was unquestionably one of the most important jewelry designers of the 20th century. Known for his early work with Coco Chanel, Verdura opened his own shop in New York in 1939. Characterized by large, boldly colored gemstones, and with a taste for gold settings and natural forms- such as animals, seashells and flowers- Verdura's designs never conformed to the trends of the time.
