Convinced that the best way to show gratitude for success is to be available for the community in order to create a better future for new generations, for many years Vhernier has supported numerous initiatives aimed at helping people in situations of hardship, with special attention to young people.

Vhernier for the kids of Haiti
For many years Vhernier has sustained, Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ), which supports the education of children in Haiti. All the profits from the sale of every Pirouette ring – with "Vhernier for Kids Haiti" engraved on the inside – guarantees a whole year of secondary school education and a new future for a Haitian student.
"APJ is incredibly grateful for Vhernier’s generosity," declared Paul Haggis, founder of APJ and Academy Award winning film maker. "Artists for Peace and Justice believes that the recovery of Haiti depends on the education of new generations.
Thanks to Vhernier’s support, the future of Haiti is looking a little brighter".
The Pirouette ring is made of silver and sheathed in rose gold.
With only 1,000 pieces created, it is sold at Vhernier boutiques for $1,370.00 USD. The company pledges 100 per cent of the proceeds (the equivalent of $600 USD) to APJ. (www.apjnow.org)
To support the activities of Progetto Itaca Onlus, a foundation that promotes support, prevention, and rehabilitation programs for people with mental health disorders, Vhernier has created a series of three limited edition Mini Calla bracelets. The bracelets, made of rose gold, recall the colors of the Itaca Project logo: the iconic cones are in fact made of turquoise, lapis and kogolong, an opal of volcanic origin.
The limited edition Calla bracelets are exclusively available at our Italian boutiques or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and with each purchase of each bracelet for 600 euros, 200 euros will be donated to the Progetto Itaca Onlus Foundation, which every year offers its help to thousands of people suffering from mental disorders.
A unique piece that evokes a flower, but also a seed. An ancestral shape, first sculpted in its creator's mind, Calla has become one of the most iconic VHERNIER jewels and also the most generous.
The Kogolong-crafted version is a magnificently white and bright collection. This is a limited edition from which the proceeds will be donated to the Andrea Bocelli Foundation to support a project aimed at helping the children of Haiti, an island that the Milanese brand holds close to its heart.
Since the spring of 2015 Vhernier has supported the Empower Shack, an interdisciplinary development project by the Urban Think Tank from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETHZ) directed by architects Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner in collaboration with Ikhayalami NGO. The aim of the initiative is to provide a solution for the informal settlements in South Africa that are growing and can no longer meet the primary needs of the vast majority of the local population.
Empower Shacks are innovative housing units that are part of a rationalized urban layout for improving the inhabitants’ quality of life by redistributing spaces and creating infrastructures that are safe and useful for the community. The Valenza-based company supports the project with the Vhernier for Africa pendant: proceeds from sales go to building new Empower Shacks for the inhabitants of Khayelitsha, a township in Cape Town.
The delicate bracelet in rose gold and pink opal stems from the Calla collection and features a smaller version of its unmistakable signature element, an ancestral shape reminiscent of a flower or a seed.
It has a double clasp and a small gold tag engraved with BCRF and VHERNIER. The resulting sophisticated jewel is both strong and feminine, yet simple enough to wear from day to night.
Produced in a limited edition of just 1000 pieces, the Calla Pink Ribbon bracelet comes in a matching pink pouch and is sold for 600 USD at Vhernier boutiques in New York, Miami, and Beverly Hills.
Vhernier will donate 30% of sales of the bracelet to BCRF.
