Location: Valobra Master Jewelers
They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so these best friends headed over to Valobra Jewelry! Tis the season! Vivian Wise, Jennifer Hancock and Bethie (our 4th squad member Nicole Lassiter was sick .. boooo) had the most wonderful afternoon trying on these phenomenal baubles at Valobra. If you think these jewels are worthy of royalty, maybe it’s because from 1905-1948 the Valobra Atelier was the official jewelers to the Italian royal family. The House of Savoy, then the longest reigning dynasty in Europe, commissioned to Vittorio Valobra and his artisans a number of spectacular pieces, from matrimonial tiaras to official royal medals, as well as multiple jewelry creations to be worn and enjoyed by King Vittorio Amanuele III and his family.
We girls had the best time spending the afternoon with the charming and hospitable Franco Valobra, a direct descendant of this multi-generational Italian jewelry atelier. We wore lots of diamonds, emeralds and pearls. Oh, and lots of giggles!
Remember that diamonds are beautiful and strong and so are friendships.
