THE DESIGNER
Vanessa Amalia is a timeless collection of chic and sophisticated charm jewelry. Designer Vanessa Amalia Raptopoulos draws inspiration for the line from both her City of New York and her Greek-Armenian heritage.

Each and every meaningful piece in the collection is a culmination of exposure to these magnificent cultures; from the refined style of street-wise New Yorkers, to the exotic taste of jewelers along the streets of Thessaloniki, to the simple beauty of the Greek islands.

The best part: every piece in the charm collection holds a significant meaning for the wearer. Whether a symbol of luck or a protective icon, the jewelry speaks for itself as more than just a charm. In fact, Amalia, Vanessa’s middle name, was inherited from her Greek grandmother who regularly spoke of these symbols of protection and luck.

Vanessa’s attraction to jewelry design began in her first jewelry class at age ten. In 2005, Vanessa decided to fully pursue her passion and launched Vanessa Amalia. Each piece is hand-crafted to perfection. The beauty is found in its simplicity.

In the words of Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

Vanessa’s jewelry is being sold at various stores around the US , as well as online.
