Alchemy is the art of transforming one substance into another, of transmuting a common metal into gold; it is the power to create something magical, spiritual and eternal. Alchemists spent centuries in secrecy, experimenting in their laboratories with metals, with stones, with various substances, and with the elements.
Atelier VM is an alchemical laboratory where a ring, a stone, a bracelet, a good luck charm become a moment, a feeling, a memory, a season, a person. Jewels that somehow materialize the intangible gifts of life and that, once made and worn, grow with us and take on the shape of our fingers and necks, absorb our experiences and protect us along the way. This is our little alchemical secret.
Since 1998, Marta Caffarelli and Viola Naj Oleari have been the soul of Atelier VM.
