The Vatican Library Collection®
Through an exclusive licensing agreement with The Vatican Library, 1928 Jewelry obtained the rights to reproduce objects and jewelry that are found in the collections of religious artifacts in the Vatican City library. Drawing on these resources, 1928 Jewelry created The Vatican Library Collection, a line of faith-oriented jewelry and gifts. This inspirational collection offers jeweled angels, etched crosses, engraved crucifixes, hand strung rosaries, hand-enameled rosary boxes, bookmarks and key chains.
The Antiquities Couture Collection is a distinctive vintage couture-inspired jewelry line created to pay homage to the exquisite design styles of the Renaissance, Victorian and Grecian eras. The collection features finely crafted pendant necklaces, brooches, earrings and bracelets in gold and silver tones with pearls and semi-precious stones.
Created for the trendsetting fashionista, the Boutique collection offers an upscale alternative to the widely distributed costumer and vintage jewelry collections found in large department stores. Most 1928 Boutique collections are limited edition earring, necklace and bracelet sets designed with vintage retro flair. Variety and the spice of life drive the Boutique inspiration, just as the seasons drive the city a jet-setting diva calls home; Paris in the fall, summer in the Hamptons and Christmas in Prague. A rich line for a rich life. Divine.
