Portrait : Infinity by Victoria
The iconic symbol that she interprets in silver and gold, in gem-set and non-set versions, serves as the guiding theme for her entire jewelry collection. The double sign of infinity reminds her of the cherished values she wishes to extend towards infinity : friendship, love, family and health. “The jewelry and watches I have received as gifts in the course of my life have always conveyed a special meaning, and it is important to me that my creations should be accompanied by a message. For me, the double infinity symbol evokes unlimited horizons, as well as fulfilling my taste for maths!” It is nonetheless from her travels that she draws her inspiration, provided the sea is part of these journeys: “its blue also comprises an infinite variety of nuances!” The budding gemologist regularly brings back precious stones from her various destinations, such as opals from Australia, sapphires from Thailand and pearls from Tahiti. While she entrusts the crafting of her fabric straps to Label Bobine, a solidarity-based workshop offering employment to women in Geneva, most of her production is based in Andalusia, where she regularly travels to produce her series. Demand for bespoke creations, mostly gem-set, is also developing. So how does she envision the future? “I would like Infinity by Victoria to take its place among the affordable young jewelry brands one can find at Bon Génie, Globus or Colette, and that people should recognize the double infinity symbol like the Van Cleef clover leaf or the Dinh Vann handcuffs.” For the time being, she is focusing on pop-up stores or online sales, such as the Labo in Geneva in early December.
