Classic rope design by VERDURA

Fulco Verdura was an italian aristocrat that designed pieces for Coco Chanel jewellery range at her Paris atelier. He moved to New York where he opened his own business in a very personal way; he only designed and manufactured pieces for the people he liked. He focused on design rather than on showing expensive stones, yet his pieces are always exuberant. Today one can still have the experience of exclusivity in the personal way that he lived and sold his creations by visiting a recreation of his apartment in the 12th floor of a magnificent New York skyscraper at 745, 5th Avenue.
