Valerio Jewellery presents Chloé Valorso’s debut designer ring collection
In this stunning avant-garde collection of thirteen collectible primal fashion rings, debutant french designer Chloé explores the importance of narrative and challenges the boundaries between real and unreal. Each piece has been sensitively crafted from natural materials drawn from Chloé’s own highly personal commitment to ethical jewellery. The pieces act as amulets that empower the wearer through their compelling symbolic qualities and deep sense of history – an essential component in this innovative interpretation of mythology.
‘To design and create the Pre History IKON collection, I immersed myself in the history of jewellery, going back to the source of adornment and its magical meanings. As a new designer out of Central Saint Martins, the notion of sustainability is at the centre of my thoughts; Thanks to my collaboration with Greg Valerio and the use of Fairtrade precious metals, I am also going back to the source of my materials. Our messages complement and reinforce one another‘ said Chloé.
Valerio Jewellery offers only certified Fairtrade Gold and Silver jewellery, accompanied by fully traceable to source gemstones and diamonds. The new designers section of Valerio’s growing international website offers the jewellery loving public the finest young designers using the finest ethical material sources. Greg Valerio – founder of Valerio is excited,
‘There is no doubt in my mind the future of designer jewellery rest in the hands of ethically uncompromising young designers. For to long the jewellery consumer has been sold an ethically shallow product. I want to see a generation of new designers break free from the pallid luxury convention established by the European heritage brands. The future of jewellery is in the hands of fresh brave designers like Chloe, who rightly put human rights and environmental protection at the heart of the design journey‘.
Chloé’s pre-History IKON collection is available to purchase online exclusively at http://www.valeriojewellery.com/pages/chloe-valorso now. Christmas ordering deadline is 12 December.
