The Atelier Versace Jewelry collection, 
 was unveiled during the Autumn/Winter 2012-13 
Atelier Versace fashion show at the Ritz Paris, on Sunday July 1st.

This inaugural collection is composed of exquisite 
one-of-a-kind rings mounted with a variety 
of precious stones such as diamonds, yellow diamonds, 
emeralds, sapphires and amethysts, 
as well as aquamarine and citrine gemstones. 
Many of the styles have been intricately sculpted by hand.

“As a designer and a collector of fine jewelry I 
have always wanted to offer the same quality of 
craftsmanship in jewelry as we offer with the Atelier Versace 
fashion collection,” says Donatella Versace.
 “Each individual ring from the collection is a work of art.”
Targeted at discerning couture clients, 
the Atelier Versace Jewelry collection is the 
perfect complement to the Maison’s similarly 
named couture collection. 
Exclusive and glamorous, the Atelier Versace 
fashion collection features all the intricacies 
that the refined craftsmanship of couture allows. 
The Atelier Versace Jewelry collection 
will be available for sale by appointment only 
and will not be reproduced.  
The return of Atelier Versace to the Paris 
runway on July 1st is a highly anticipated event. 
Scheduled for 7.30 and 8.30 pm, the two 
Atelier Versace runway shows will be 
held in the Ritz’s Salon Vendôme.
The Ritz Paris hosted numerous Atelier Versace 
runway shows from 1990 until Gianni Versace 
presented his last collection there in July 1997.

Following her brother’s death, 
Donatella Versace continued to show
 Atelier Versace at the Ritz Paris until 2000, 
and returned once again with the collection in January 2004.
 The show on July 1st will be one of
 the last major events to take place at the Ritz Paris before 
it closes its doors on July 31st for an
 unprecedented restoration project.

Atelier Versace returned to the Paris couture 
calendar last January with a presentation at the 
École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. 
Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez, 
Gwyneth Paltrow, Lady Gaga and Uma Thurman 
have all turned to Atelier Versace 
for their red carpet appearances.
