In 1996, Greg Valerio started a small Fairtrade Jewellery company called CRED Jewellery. Since those heady pioneering days of Green Gold Wedding rings, creating Fairtrade Gold and fighting for Ruby Rights in Greenland, the adventures in ethical jewellery have continued to embrace the socially and environmentally transformative idea that jewellery is more than just adornment. Jewellery is talismanic, a symbol of who we are and what we stand for. Whether it is a wedding ring, a bespoke piece that celebrates an anniversary or birth of a child. Jewellery captures moments in time that become memories and heirlooms.
Valerio Jewellery is a collaboration between two long standing friends, Steve Copping and Greg Valerio. Both went to the same school, Chichester High School for Boys (brats) in Chichester during the 80’s. Recently they have reconnected and are bringing their respective expertise in beginning the adventure of developing a luxury online jewellery brand that is dedicated to redefining how luxury jewellery is created, sold and perceived by the public.
All our jewellery has a story, whether it from Fairtrade Gold mines in Peru, Rubies from Greenland, or Sapphires from Sri Lanka, we not only seek out the purest sources for our gems, diamonds and metals, we are unashamedly committed to promoting human rights, environmental justice, mine to market traceability. Our jewels are beautiful, stunning and accessible luxury that reflects our customers tastes, design, styling and progressive values. We believe jewellery is a charismatic purchase that uniquely communicates something about the wearer. It is adornment that should reflect the best qualities of the human spirit, love, justice, peace and equality. This is why our customers buy Valerio Jewellery, because it’s a statement about making a contribution to living in a better world for everyone.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope you find something that excites, as you browse our online jewellery boutique.
