Ilenia Corti founded Vernissage in 2008

Vernissage collections are an invitation to assist to the show of the frozen Nature in its vital tension, an image fading in time, a testimony of the memory of when small things were the most enchanting. Each jewel crystallized into a fragment of this fragile and mysterious universe. The project finds its inspiration in the tension between a dream vision, childlike vitality and the pragmatism of the adult world.

The uniqueness and strong creative identity lead the brand to numerous calls and prestigious events in Italy and abroad as Vogue Talents, Altaroma, Uk jewelery awards, Super talents, Artisanal intelligence, ASVOFF, in addition to ‘enthusiastic response from the most authoritative magazines such as Vogue uk, Ny times, Los angeles Times and many others.

Each jewellery collection tells about a natural microcosm, diamonds in nuances from grey to black, and the use of pink, yellow burnished silver create a suggestion of ancient times, of lost beauty.

Vernissage is produced in Italy according to the traditional rules of high jewellery. The collection is handmade in Italy  by expert craftsmen of one of the most leader companies in this sector, Santagostino, owned by the Corti family.

Vernissage jewels want to highlight the frame of the jewel which is usually hidden. The skeleton on which decorations and stones usually lay is highlighted by a filigree of godronné and burnished silver. Each creation is hand modeled and finely hand carved, down to the cuts and the settings for the stones.
