Driven by the innate love for the worlds of art and fashion, Roberto Coin founded his eponymous brand in 1996 after enjoying a successful career as a hotelier. Based in Vicenza—a magical city known as the City of Gold in Northern Italy—Roberto Coin’s romantic imaginations were brought to life through the hands and unmatched skills of renowned artisans, telling his story through jewels that truly become works of art.
Today, the brand is among the most renowned Italian jewelers, and each piece of jewelry is the result of a thorough process, influenced by different cultures and nature. The ability to transfer the most varied experiences into the jewels characterizes the brand’s collections with an unmistakable mark of identity and uniqueness.
Most recently, Roberto Coin combines his technological prowess with time-honored craftsmanship to create the new Love in Verona collection. The four-petaled floral motif repeats in diamonds and in engraving, even reappearing in the gallery of each piece as a reminder of our inner beauty. Every one of Coin’s collections begins with a story. And it is a love story that drew Coin to Verona. Romeo and Juliet is not just a sad story, it is a tragedy. But it is a tragedy of intense emotions, which are missing today, worldwide. A story of two people who went against the world, their families, because they were in love.
The Flower design is at the heart of the Love in Verona Collection. Its floral motif is inspired by the hills of Verona in the medieval period— the time of Romeo and Juliet. And in the Renaissance, the time of Shakespeare, flowers were everywhere and they represented romanticism—a symbol of love. Coin decided to take all this and put it in a bracelet, decorated with the renaissance flowers, and representing the perfect love. Starting from a sketch of a beautiful rose pattern, very common in the Renaissance buildings in Verona, he takes that inspiration and creates something new and innovative. Just as Shakespeare who transformed a real 200-year old story into a unique play, Coin took a 600-year old design and transformed it into a contemporary jewelry design.
He works on the concept over and over again, creating one concept and design after another. In his imagination, Roberto changes the end of the Romeo and Juliet story. The ending he envisions includes a happy wedding at the end. With that, he created the romantic Love in Verona Collection. He began with a bracelet and now the collection includes rings, necklaces, earrings, and an engagement and wedding band set. Roberto Coin’s creativity is endless.
