Feminine to the core, designer Jenna Iannelli blends the drama and excitement of the Baroque with subtle undertones of today's modern aesthetic.
Jenna discovered her jewellery-making passion during a difficult time in her life while caring for her ill father.
“Caring for my father allowed me the calm to reflect on my own life’s meaning. I searched for a creative outlet, which inspired me to attend jewellery workshops in Toronto and gemology programs at Sotheby’s in New York. I became obsessed with chasing a new dream, the urgency to create beautiful jewellery.”
She named her exquisite creations Valentine Rouge (red heart in French) in memory of her father, who died of heart disease early in her jewellery-design career.
“I pour beauty and passion into every one of my creations and they are as unique as every woman’s heart.”
Valentine Rouge participates in several fundraisers and is a proud sponsor of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Bridgepoint, Health, Amnesty International and the St. Jude Heart of Fashion.
