Roberto Coin's Beautiful Jewelry Designs
Roberto Coin founded his namesake company in Vincenza, Italy in 1977. Coincidentally, Vincenza is known as the City of Gold. In its early stages, the company produced pieces for some of the most prestigious brands in the industry. Coin launched his own brand in 1996, and within four years was among the top seven jewelry brands in the United States.
Philosophies Behind the Brand
The signature of this jewelry line is the use of rubies or rubellite in nearly every piece made. Usually, the ruby is small and hidden. Rubies are considered "the king of gemstones" and in ancient Egyptian legend, rubies touching the skin bring good fortune, health and happiness to the wearer. There are various legends and lore associated with rubies in other cultures as well. It is for this reason, that every creation the company makes contains a ruby that touches the skin.
Joie de vivre, or joy of life, is an ever-present underpinning of the designer. This joy is expressed through the individuality of the designs. It is seen in the use of light, shapes and colors. These creations go beyond just jewelry, bringing in elements of fashion and modern trends.
