In 1930, Verdura, with Chanel as his muse, shattered the status quo in 20th century jewelry design. Inspired by the Byzantine mosaic of Empress Theodora at the Italian Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna, Verdura and Chanel set out to break the rules of popular style. It’s a don’t miss exhibition on view through October 8, 2018.
