Houston’s own Valobra Master Jewelers is excited to introduce VERDI, a brand of Italian luxury jewelry, never before seen in the United States, sold exclusively at Valobra. The launch features a 2-day trunk show in their River Oaks showroom (2150 Westheimer Rd.) on April 13th and 14th from 10am – 6pm with a vibrant assortment of colors and styles. Due to his love and connections with his native country, Franco Valobra strives to continue featuring the finest jewels from Italy and will continue to carry the collection after the trunk show.
The brand VERDI began in 1971 in Valenza, which is full of "creative Italian jewelry boutiques". The company's founder, Giuseppe Verdi, skillfully blended style, emotion, elegance, and refinement to create astounding fine jewelry collections without ever being repetitive and always emphasizing innovation in the development of gemstone research, as well as cutting and setting technologies through a mixture of new technologies and skillful artisan excellence.
The VERDI philosophy is to emphasize the personality of the product over and above its commercial character to offer highly exclusive customers their "first experience in fine jewelry to be lived intensely and uniquely" thanks to the classic refined style kept up to date with the passing years for fashions aligned with the desires of tomorrow. The stylistic evolution of the company has always been distinguished by incredible technical skill, extremely elegant quality, and special attention to the smallest creative details during every stage of the process from the idea to the strictly Italian production without ever infringing on the unique and exclusive characteristics outlined initially by Giuseppe Verdi.
Over the years, the tradition has been carried on by Marco Verdi, the founder's son. Each year, the stylistic choices for the new sophisticated and exclusive design collections have met with success. Managed by the internal style department, they have always been aligned with the company motto, incorporating a fine eye for details, proportions, and the maximum expression of contemporary style - where fine craftsmanship meets creative development to bring life to new and alternative forms through unusual and original pairings.
Valobra Master Jewelers has been creating jewelry for 115 years, beginning in 1905 in Torino, Italy as the official master jeweler to the Italian Royal family. Being the fourth-generation master jeweler, Franco Valobra continues this legacy by creating the most exquisite one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry made in the Houston showroom and offering luxury timepieces to clients and the community. Valobra Master Jewelers, situated in the heart of River Oaks in Houston, also has locations in New Orleans, Louisiana and Lugano, Switzerland.
