Roberto Coin Ruby
I recently had the pleasure of hosting a lovely party in Omaha with my friends at Veranda magazine. It featured jewels by the legendary jeweler Roberto Coin. With the holiday fast approaching I thought it was a perfect time to share some of my Christmas wish list. I promise you any girl would be delighted to find one of these confections under her tree!
This necklace is a piece from one of Roberto Coin's most popular collections, Pois Mois. I find it compelling in it bears a feminine line with a modern sensibility. This classic design comes in a number of iterations so you can pick your bauble. I could see wearing this dazzler during the day to lunch or out for a glam night on the town. I love anything that has so much functionality and sparkle!
Speaking of sparkle and wish lists! Here is a stunner that can only be worn at night, but oh what a night it would be...yummy!
A pair of diamond stud earrings is always a winner and I adore how this pair uses both emerald and round cut diamonds to enhance the form. Yes, please!
How wonderful to stack these beauties up the arm? The more the merrier!
A classic gold hoop is my go-to and adding diamonds is always a boon.
In 1977, Roberto Coin founded the company that would bear his name in Vicenza, the city of Gold. Initially, the company was intended for production on behalf of some of the most prestigious brands of international fine jewelry. The Roberto Coin brand was launched in 1996. Success was quick and extraordinary. By 2000, only four years after the brand’s birth, Roberto Coin positioned itself seventh amongst the best-known jewelry brands in the United States. Two years later in 2002, the brand ranked third in the international panorama and first among Italian jewelers. The headquarters is in Vicenza, Italy and is assisted by foreign branches as well as by Roberto Coin Inc. on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Behind the Roberto Coin Ruby:
The ruby has always been enveloped in a legendary aura, and due to its exceptional quality of maintaining beauty throughout time it is considered eternal, like true love. According to an ancient belief, wearing a ruby close to the skin promoted long life, health and happiness and even today it is believed to possess these magic powers including the extraordinary ability of giving peace.
In 1996, Roberto Coin started signing his jewels by setting a small ruby hidden on the inside of each piece, allowing the distinguished gem to kiss the skin. Since then, this tradition has become the exclusive signature of every jewel by Roberto Coin, dedicated as a secret gift of good wishes to every woman lucky enough to wear one of his exclusive creations.
