Richemont Acquires Italian Jeweler Vhernier

Swiss luxury conglomerate Richemont announced on 7 May 2024 that it has acquired Italian jeweller Vhernier in a private transaction.


Founded in Valenza, Italy in 1984 and headquartered in Milan, Vhernier was acquired by the Traglio family in 2001.


Vhernier is renowned for the distinctive modern aesthetic of its design jewellery, inspired by the curves of the human body and the essential forms of modern sculpture to create bold sculptural and ergonomic shapes, as well as for the unusual combination of traditional precious metals and gemstones with unconventional materials such as titanium, bronze and ebony. These characteristics, brought to life by innovative craftmanship, can be seen throughout the brand’s collections, amongst them Calla and Palloncino.


All jewellery pieces are handcrafted in Valenza, recognised for its jewellery manufacturing excellence, ensuring the highest level of craftsmanship and quality, said Richemont in a statement. Jewellery pieces from the brand are sold through a highly selective network of mono-brand boutiques and prestigious multi-brand stores, predominantly in Europe and the United States.


Vhernier brings a distinguished and distinctive design that beautifully blends modern, sleek and elegant shapes with unconventional materials, magnified by exceptional craftsmanship, said Johann Rupert, chairman of Richemont.


Vhernier also operates De Vecchi Milano 1935, an Italian heritage silverware home decor brand, recognised for its timeless contemporary design. (Photo courtesy: Richemont)
