What we collectively know as Valentino, includes several brand initiatives: Valentino, Valentino Garavani, Valentino Roma, and R.E.D. Valentino. The fashion house was founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani and is part of Valentino Fashion Group. The company operates in the upper echelon of the fashion and luxury industries, offering exclusive products in the couture, ready-to-wear, designer, and jewelry sectors.
Valentino is headquartered in Milan, while the creative masterminds are in Rome. The fashion business unit is named after its founder Valentino Garavani, who is widely considered a legendary master of the haute couture and is among the leading representatives spearheading Italian style and creativity in the universe of luxury and fashion. The designer who is turning 88 next month is known for the ability to perfectly combine traditional and contemporary: French embroidery, Italian fabrics, centuries old workmanship techniques, and current trends.
In just over 45 years of being in the industry, his collections have accessorized and adorned top international celebrities time and time again. Valentino has designed wedding dresses for Elizabeth Taylor, Courtney Cox, Princess Madeleine of Sweden, and many more. Valentino has often expressed his drawing of inspiration from nature, and more particularly, flowers. This floral inspiration is seen imprinted on dresses and worked into exquisite jewelry pieces.
Valentino Jewelry: Inspired by Nature
Plants and flowers are what usually come to mind when we think of nature, and in this Valentino jewelry piece, we are graced with the warmth, simplicity, and a little playfulness of chestnut motif. This rare Valentino jewelry piece is made of glass and crystals that are set in a gold tone alloy.
Very obviously resembling a ram, this Valentino crystal brooch displays the wild side of nature tamed by enamel and gold tone.
Fruit designs are also present in Valentino jewelry, as in the case of this pearl “grape” extra large brooch. With enameled leaves and vines of gold and crystal, this Valentino jewelry piece brings the grace of nature in classic colors and tones.
Flowers in Valentino Jewelry
These Valentino jewelry pieces bring gorgeous blooms to live 365 days a year. Be it gold earrings with green crystals, or rose gold roses, to blossoms in the form of an earring - brooch set, Valentino jewelry continues dishing out various seemingly simple and complex realism style floral designs.
The Valentino brand has always stood for quality and luxury with a fusion of the best in French and Italian aesthetics. This, along with uncompromising commitment to quality and craftsmanship, has earned Valentino millions of loyal fans worldwide along with the prestigious Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur award from France's President Chirac. Investing in Valentino jewelry is a good idea worth considering even at times of economic uncertainty: Classic and timeless, stylish and highly thought after, durable and always relevant.
