Nathalie Betito of Venazia™ Haute Couture first started working with moissanite back in 2001. While researching ways to upgrade her engagement ring, she discovered many positive reviews from women who owned moissanite. When she saw the stone in person, the deal was sealed. Nathalie decided not to stop with her own engagement ring – she began designing a line of high-end jewelry featuring large moissanite center stones.
We caught up with Nathalie at this year’s JCK Las Vegas trade show. Here’s what she took away from the event.
The Vegas JCK show this year was, as usual, very interesting. I always enjoy meeting the numerous players in this eclectic industry.
Since my passion is fine design, I paid particular attention to the trends on display in the luxury pavilion. Unsurprisingly, a major trend remains the halo design, which is reflected in our new Venazia 2015 Magnifica Collection. This collection puts the accent on halo settings, with endless sophisticated micro details to make our rings truly unique. We decided, for example to insert the exclusive V of Venazia into the setting as our signature.
Each and every year, it is a pleasure to meet with the Charles & Colvard team. This year’s booth was bright and elegant, just as we expected. A nice surprise for me was seeing my quote about the beauty of moissanite framed on the wall of the C&C booth!
The future of moissanite is full of wonderful surprises and I cannot wait for our national and international customers to hear about the exciting news! Charles & Colvard is working hard to develop new stones that will go beyond all of our expectations. This gives us strong motivation to come up with wonderful and sophisticated designs that will complement this beautiful stone.
Moissanite remains the best fine jewel in the industry, and Venazia is proud to design pieces that showcase its unparalleled brilliance.
