Verdura

    The Duke of Verdura set up shop in New York in 1939 and created jewelry for the socialites and style icons of his era including Babe Paley, the Duchess of Windsor, and Diana Vreeland. Verdura’s famous original designs—such as the fashionable Maltese cross cuff and cage ring—are reproduced today for a new generation of style setters. Signature Style: Colorful, bold jewelry portrayed in the Maltese cross cuff, paisley earrings, and chunky necklaces.
