Gianni Versace vintage costume jewelry
Italian fashion designer and founder of Versace, Giovanni Maria Versace (2 December 1946 – 15 July 1997) was born and raised in Calabria region. The region from the VIII century BC e. and up to the III century BC. e. belonged to the Greeks, who left behind several significant cultural monuments. The influence of ancient culture is read in many of Versace’s collections.
Most Versace jewelry for women is easily recognizable by the brand’s characteristic decorative motifs. For example, the ring decorated with greek patterns, the necklaces complemented with miniature pendants in the shape of the Gorgon Medusa, and the bracelet made after the Baroque motif invented in 1992.
The famous Versace logo is nothing more than a marble statue of Medusa Rondanini, depicting the moment of her transformation from a beautiful woman to a monster. Versace is one of the few designers who chose such a complex drawing as the logo of their house. But largely thanks to this image, Medusa has become as iconic as the founder of the brand himself.
According to Versace, anyone who fell in love with Medusa could not forget about her. The same magnetic effect his statement brooches, earrings and necklaces make on the owners of his decorations.

Noteworthy, the most talented designer who worked for Versace, was Ugo Correani, with whom he met in the 1970s. Correani created jewelry for Versace, which shone not only on the catwalks, but also at La Scala in such productions as Evita, Andre Malraux and Salome. Correani died from AIDS in 1992, and his last thought was about Versace. “When I die, I want to be buried in a red suit and a Versace shirt.”
