I am just in love with EVERYTHING this jewelry brand encompasses. From the product design to the branding story, the essence of BRVTVS is perfectly understated. “Brvtvs (Pronunciation: \ˈbrü-təs\) is a New York based jewelry collection created by Caroline Ventura. Inspired by her love for menswear tailoring, Brvtvs mixes masculine and feminine touches to create pieces that are restrained and delicate. Each Brvtvs piece is handmade in Ventura’s NYC studio, using reclaimed materials whenever available.”
I was introduced to the designer via her (now) husband, Michael, who is a Founder/CEO/Creative Director that I’ve had the pleasure of working with once upon a time. These 2 are seriously creative powerhouses and dynamic entrepreneurs. I still often look to them as muses, tipping my hat from afar at every endeavor (no matter how big or small) they’ve created, endured, and accomplished, including BRVTVS’s recent debut in J.Crew’s fine jewelry collection.
If you don’t already own a piece of BRVTVS jewelry, I highly encourage you to check it out. I’ve pulled some of my favorite pieces including the Cleopatra Ring which I just purchased myself. Can’t wait to wear it!
