MV Vellano vintage costume jewelry
The history of an Italian high-end costume jewelry line “MV Vellano” lasted no more than a decade, from the late 1970s to the 1980s. A confident, optimistic woman of the 1980s did not need to confirm her status with expensive decorations, preferring costume jewelry. Besides, the 80s statement jewelry went well with large sunglasses, bright and contrasting silk scarves. It was during this period that the work of many European jewelry companies and, in particular, Italian companies, met the demands of the time.
Noteworthy, the products of MV Vellano are very similar to other Italian brand Vogue Bijoux, as they had one owner. The designers of these companies created high quality haute couture jewelry luxury for upscale shops and boutiques.
Traditionally, they used 18kt gold-plated metal alloys, pavé Swarovski crystals, glass cabochons, lucite, and enamel. Undoubtedly, high-end design, best materials and high quality workmanship made these items collectible.
Both Italian companies Vogue Bijoux and MV Vellano are no longer in operation.
