    Prior to founding the House of Verdura in 1939, Duke Fulco di Verdura worked as a jeweller for Coco Chanel and Paul Flato, creating some of the most iconic jewellery in the 20th century, such as the Maltese cross bangle that was Coco Chanel’s favourite jewel. Verdura was known for his talent in mix and matching, instinctively bringing colourful gemstones together with shells and wood in innovative and memorable designs.

    Verdura公爵在創立同名品牌佛杜拉之前曾為香奈兒及Paul Flato設計珠寶,當中不少已成為二十世紀的經典設計,包括可可香奈兒最鍾愛的十字架手鐲, 亦成為他的重要標記。佛杜拉以出色的「混搭」技藝名聞於世,憑藉敏銳和感性的天賦,將彩色寶石和貝殼及木材用在同一件作品上,獨特的構思往往令人喜出望外。

    Verdura

    American

    Duke Fulco di Verdura was born into an aristocratic family in the late nineteenth century and quickly became a man with a vast imagination. Raised in a world of fairy tale-themed costume parties, Verdura conceptualized jewelry inspired by the animal aesthetics from his lavish childhood.

    With a youthful, refreshing approach to jewelry making and an international sensibility, Verdura prospered in the interwar years and capitalized on the wealth of tourists who visited Venice and Palermo. He caught the attention of Cole Porter, who became a long-lasting patron and appreciated the value in Verdura's diamond, gold, and pearl accessories.
