Gold quilted cuff with red poured glass stone

$1,200.00

Gold-tone metal quilted Valentino cuff circa late 1980's - early 1990's, as evidence by the small VO  marking on inside of cuff. This particular Valentino copyright marking was used on all pieces of costume jewelry that were made in the USA between the late 80's and early 90's. This was a short lived venture for Valentino. Large red poured glass stone in centre of cuff. Excellent condition, very little scratching. 

Height 2.2" | Width 2.5" 

Valentino

Valentino was able to infiltrate the tightly knit couture circle in Paris by studying at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture in Paris. He became an assistant at Jean Desses in 1950, moved to Guy Laroche in 1956 and in 1960 he returned to his native Italy and set up a couture house in Rome. Two years later he did his first ready-to-wear collection and he showed it at the Pitti Palace in Florence, a move which led to greater exposure and set him as a major Italian designer. Valentino is known for grand and dramatic collections, like in 1968 when he presented a surprisingly young and modern all white collection which lead to him being the top wedding dress designer, creating dresses for Jacqueline Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor. His trademark color is a bright orange-red which he uses over and over in his collections and his breathtaking pieces have been worn on red carpets all over the world.
