Roberto Coin was established in 1996 and bears the same name as its founder. The brand’s creator is passionate about art and fashion. After his career in the hotel industry, he decided to pursue his dream. Today his creations are world renowned. Let’s take a closer look at his history and passion for jewellery.
Italy as a main source of inspiration
Roberto Coin is a well-travelled man who draws his inspiration from nature, people, architecture, art and food. His creations testify to it. However, what inspires him most of all is undoubtedly his native country, Italy, and more specifically the wonderful city of Verona. It was the tragic love story between Romeo and Juliet that first captivated Roberto Coin, then the history of the city.
The floral motif at the heart of the Love in Verona collection
If you are familiar with the Love in Verona collection, you already know that it features a floral motif. But why? Roberto Coin goes back to medieval times, to the time of Romeo and Juliet, and imagines the hills of Verona full of blossoming flowers. Flowers were widely present during the Renaissance, a symbol of romanticism and love. For Roberto Coin, the flower motif is the essence itself of perfect love, the love that we all dream about.
The future of Roberto Coin jewellery
All of the brand’s creations are designed to last a long time, both because of their quality and because of their timeless design. Roberto Coin seeks to maintain a meticulous process to preserve the brand’s identity and uniqueness. The company is also committed to ensuring transparency in terms of all the raw materials used. The origin of the materials must be exclusively conflict-free and from socially and environmentally ethical sources.
One this is certain, the Venetian jeweller Roberto Coin will continue to make us dream.

White gold is no doubt one of the most highly sought after metals. It is highly resistant and has a bright white colour that is easy to wear on a daily basis. However, no matter how well you care for them, white gold rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings acquire a patina over time. Yet, there is no need to worry; it is not irreversible! Indeed, there is a way for your jewellery to regain its colour and brilliance, as if it were the first day. This process is called rhodium plating. Following is an explanation of the features of white gold and this method.
All about white gold
White gold is an alloy. While yellow gold is usually a mix of 75% gold, 12.5% silver and 12.5% copper, white gold has less copper and more silver, which gives it its white colouring. Rhodium is then used to adjust the colour. Rhodium plating gives a piece of white gold jewellery a particularly dazzling white hue. White gold is highly regarded because of its resistance to shocks and corrosion, as well as for its beauty and timelessness. However, over time, shocks and friction will eventually wear down the rhodium layer to reveal an egg white colour that is not as shiny.
What is rhodium plating?
Rhodium plating is a technique used on white gold and silver jewellery. The main purpose is to give the piece a dazzling white hue. Before a piece of jewellery is rhodium plated, the jeweller thoroughly polishes it to ensure that it is completely smooth, which is a very important step for the quality of the plating. Once this is done, rhodium plating begins. Rhodium plating starts with ultrasonic cleaning, which will remove any residue that has accumulated over time. Once the piece of jewellery is clean, it will be soaked in four baths in a row. It will be degreased, rinsed several times, and then dipped in the rhodium plating solution. This last step will give your white gold jewellery a second life, making it appear as if it were new. To ensure that your jewellery never loses its shine, we strongly advise that you have it rhodium-plated by a professional every two years or so. And of course to take care of your jewellery on a daily basis.
If you have any white gold jewellery in need of a cleaning or rhodium plating, make an appointment at our GENEVE jewellery shop!

You already have the ring. Now you have to find the perfect earrings, the ones that will enhance your face. This accessory is ideal for finishing off your hairstyle and highlighting your makeup. Your earrings will also add incomparable sparkle to your wedding pictures. But take note, if you choose large earrings, we suggest that you not wear a necklace. For a more classic touch, go with stud earrings.

Depending on your dress, you may not be able to wear a necklace. However, if you are able to and want to, a necklace will enhance your neckline. Why not choose a pretty chain with a set diamond or peal? Or why not go a different route and choose a more original option? For example, coloured stones or a long necklace that falls on your bare back.

If your dress is sleeveless or has short sleeves, you could wear a bracelet to dress up your wrist. For slender wrists, opt for discreet bracelets or bangles. For thicker wrists, you can allow yourself to play with larger bracelets.

The benefits of diamonds
Diamonds are known for detoxifying the body. They can be considered cleansers, purifiers. According to Indian beliefs, diamonds are an excellent remedy for exhaustion. They lead to a long life and, above all, good health.
Diamonds are said to boost the wearer’s confidence and creativity. The stone is able to purify the soul and expand energy. Diamonds also protect against harmful thoughts and negative energy.

Pearls come in all kinds of sizes and colours. Often perceived as classic, they are making a comeback and looking more modern and radiant than ever. Do you want to know more about this gemstone? Learn more about pearls and discover our selection of jewellery.
How do pearls form?
Pearls are the result of a natural phenomenon. They form inside oysters when a foreign substance slips inside their shell. The oyster then protects itself by covering the intruder with layers of nacre, eventually resulting in a smooth, round, nacre pearl. These highly coveted natural pearls are used by many brands, because the gift of pearl jewellery is a timeless piece that can last a lifetime.
What do pearls symbolise?
The pearl is a gemstone that symbolises elegance, refinement and confidence. Often associated with Venus, the goddess of love, it conveys femininity. It is also the stone that represents 30 years of marriage. This trendy gemstone is an integral part of today’s fashion.
Our selection of pearl jewellery
Each pearl is unique, no two are the same, which is why we like to work with them to create extraordinary pieces.

Pieces of jewellery are not simply fashion accessories; they reflect the personality of the wearer. From white gold to yellow gold, there are many metals used in the design of jewellery creations. Did you know that some metals suit you better than others? While it is important to follow your tastes and instincts, don’t hesitate to ask your jeweller for advice to help you choose the metal that is best for you. Below are our tips on choosing your jewellery according to your skin undertone as well as a selection of jewellery that may be just right for you.
Know your skin undertone
It is not always obvious which skin undertone you have. The easiest way is to look at your wrist, especially your veins. Do you have blue veins? Then you have a cool skin undertone. Do you have green veins? In this case, your skin undertone is warm. If you are not sure, it’s because you have a neutral skin undertone.
Which metals and stones are best for warm undertones?
Naturally tanned and sun-kissed skin will undoubtedly be enhanced by yellow gold, which will highlight and illuminate the skin. Warm undertones can also opt for rose gold jewellery. As for stones, we advise you favour yellow, orange and green ones. Yellow sapphire, imperial topaz and emerald are your best bets.

Which metals and stones are best for cool undertones?
Cool skin undertones, and thus paler complexions, are enhanced by silver, white gold and platinum. These metals can be paired with red, purple and blue coloured stones such as rubies, amethysts or even blue sapphires for a pure, fresh look.

Those with neutral undertones are very lucky, because you can wear anything. Indeed, you can switch from white gold to yellow gold without a second thought and even wear them together if you want. To stay on top of the latest trends, you can have a wide variety of jewellery to create beautiful combinations.
