Roberto Coin, the man behind the brand, was not always in the world of jewelry. In the heart of Vicenza, Italy, often referred to as the "City of Gold," Roberto faced a life-changing tragedy; Orphaned at the age of 7, he was sent to a boarding school in Switzerland. There, amidst the snow-capped mountains, Roberto discovered a world of luxury in the hotel industry. He climbed its ranks, and by his early 30s, owned a prestigious four-star hotel. But beneath his successful exterior, a dormant passion for art and fashion stirred, and beckoned him to a new path. In 1977, Roberto decided to chase this passion. Selling his hotel, he dove headfirst into the world of jewelry, armed with nothing but raw talent and an unyielding spirit.
He began modestly, buying and selling jewels, learning the ropes, before starting to produce pieces for other renowned Italian brands. His innate creativity and unique design perspective quickly made him a sought-after name in the industry. However, Roberto's vision was grander. In 1996, he birthed his own brand, “Roberto Coin”, blending old-world Italian craftsmanship with modern techniques.
Roberto Coin is often hailed as a master of light, shape and color, offering intricate details and plays on texture; His designs, inspired by nature, diverse cultures, and history, immortalize tales of love, dreams, and journeys in 18kt yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold, diamonds, precious stones, gold and steel, wood and other supplies.
But what truly sets Roberto Coin jewelry apart is a unique signature: a small, hidden ruby embedded inside each piece. This signature was inspired by ancient Egyptian lore, where rubies were believed to bring health, happiness, and longevity to those who kept it in close contact with their skin.
Roberto Coin prioritizes transparency in every aspect of its raw material sourcing and production. Adhering to international agreements, the brand ensures that all materials originate from conflict-free zones, upholding core values of social and environmental responsibility. Additionally, Roberto Coin is a proud member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC).
Today, Roberto Coin touts legacy, it stands tall among the world's most renowned jewelry designers, with its pieces adorning celebrities and fashion icons. The brand's commitment to quality, innovation, and artistry has made it a favorite in the worlds of fashion and cinema. Roberto Coin's creations are more than just jewelry; they are experiences, journeys, and memories crafted into gold and precious stones. It's not just jewelry; it's a piece of Roberto's soul, a man who turned adversities into sparkling masterpieces.
