The founder, whose brand carries his name, started the company in 1977 as a production outfit for world-renowned jewelry brands. But his craft would be best expressed in its own signature brand. Roberto Coin is known for the elegant expressions of its rubies and rubellite—a take on an Ancient Egyptian belief that touching the gemstone brings good fortune.
