Delfina Delettrez Fendi is a self-made italian jewellery designer born in 1987 in Rome, as part of the fourth generation of the Fendi family. Delfina grew up in a very creative environment, her father Bernard Delettrez was a jewellery designer and her mother Silvia Venturini Fendi was the creative director for accessories at Fendi, and they both shaped Delfina, and provided her with knowledge of how to run a successful business within the fashion industry.
In my opinion, Delfina is a very brave young woman who dares to design very bold and fun and original pieces. It is like she can transfer the most normal things into magic just by adding diamonds. Delfina, herself, describes her designs as: “I like to describe my jewellery as toys for adults.”
In her designs she uses a lot of natural forms, such as animals, skeleton parts and eyes. Further she mixes different motives and gives them a very luxurious look. A good example of Delfina’s use of the human body as a source of inspiration is a skeleton hand in silver with diamonds and a cabochon ruby. This pieces was sold out in Opening Ceremony and cost a staggering $25,553.
Delfina’s first jewellery collection came out in 2007 and was sold in Collette. Today, her designs are sold all over the world and she has just opened a new store in London. Since 2007 she has expanded her jewellery line together with different partners making eyewear, gloves and shoes – however her passion still lies in designing jewelleries.
