For more than 10 years already, brand VERBA is creating unique handmade jewelry designs from silver and natural stones. The main source of inspiration for brand designer Anna Fanigina is words. Each created piece has a unique inscription in Latin. With its’ significant yet short spoken phrases, Latin plays a role as a peculiar “code” in the never-ending stream of messages to the humanity.
Aesthetics of VERBA is based on transparency, ascetics, and simplicity.
The brand name originated from the phrase “adbibere verba pūrō pectore” – “accept words with pure heart” – depicting main idea of the brand: jewellery is not only a pretty accessory, but it is also a carrier of feelings, thoughts and philosophy as contributions from the heart.
