Vanessa grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of her hometown Lugano, Switzerland. In order to fulfill her interest and talent for arts she pursued an education at the prestigious Central Saint Martins school in London.
After earning a bachelor’s degree in jewellery design, Vanessa followed her passion for the finest materials at the Gemological Institute of America in New York where she earned a Graduate Gemologist degree. Drawn to the richness of Asian culture, Vanessa spent a year in Hong Kong at a luxury pearl house as a Creative Director and Chief Designer.
She returned to Europe and continued to create iconic collections for the world’s leading diamond jewellers in London. Vanessa chose Geneva in 2012 as the location to launch her own fine jewellery line, Vanessa Martinelli, a step forward to a complete freedom to create pieces that fully express a Swiss-Italian passion for life and beauty. Vanessa is currently based in Lugano, her hometown in Switzerland, and travels to meet clients and find inspirations for her new designs.
Exceptional fabrics from a family-run business in Como, Italy – the ancient silk capital of the world – form the foundation of Vanessa Martinelli’s exquisite silkwear collection. Italian artisans carefully sew each item by hand, ensuring the luxurious fabrics drape beautifully and the iconic candy motifs gently shimmer across the flattering silhouettes. We offer customization in celebration of all body shapes and sizes. As believers in slow fashion, we only keep a limited number of each style in stock to reduce excess. If you do not see your size, please contact us and we will make it for you. Collect and cherish these works of art that you can also enjoy wearing every day.
