UPDATE: Valentina, another one of my favorite designs, is currently not available as she was selected by and now resides at the Ivan Bitton Celebrity Style House in Los Angeles. If you were truly mesmerized by her beauty, please send us an e-mail and we can look into the possibility of cloning her! Valentina’s Story: She was a design that came into creation a few years ago when I was contacted by a bride on Facebook inquiring if I could design some bridal jewelry for her best friend who was getting married. This was before I considered launching and was so flattered to be asked to help out. I gratefully accepted the offer of assistance which resulting in a stunning pair of earrings and a ribbon tie version of the necklace you are seeing now. Valentina is a stunning double stand necklace of imported freshwater pearls finished with a specially hand-crafted closure with a sterling silver hook & eye clasp. She is unique and romantic and I needed to name her accordingly; hence, naming her Valentina which is the feminine form of the name Valentinus. One famous bearer of the name is Valentina Tereshkova who was a Soviet cosmonaut and known as the first woman to visit space. Valentina was a trailblazer for women as this necklace is in pearl designs.
