The brand was established in 1968, in Paris, by a remarkable businesswoman and designer of lavish ornaments, Paloma Picasso. She is the daughter of Pablo Picasso, the famous artist, and Françoise Gilot, a painter/writer. Paloma went on to become a costume designer and her designs of jewelry and fashion accessories highlight the success of her ideal career. Picasso always focuses on achieving the best results.
Following the recognition and approval of her rhinestone necklace designs, created from cheap flea market finds, she opted to take jewelry classes to improve her skills. She approached her friend, the famous fashion designer, Yves Saint-Laurent, with her creations. He promptly hired her to make accessories for his collections. After this, Paloma Picasso, in 1971, was hired by the renowned Greek jewelry company, Zolotas, well-known for its exquisite high-end jewelry.
In 1980, Paloma Picasso left Paris, or the City of Light, and moved to New York to work with Tiffany & Co, one of the leading brands of international jewelers. John Loring, senior vice-president of Tiffany & Company, appreciating her talent, offered to hire her; an offer that was eagerly accepted by Paloma as she wished to have access to a larger audience. In addition to her designing skills, her creative talent inspires her to make perfumes; a trait that is considered to be hereditary as her maternal grandfather was a perfumer.
In 2010, Paloma Picasso and Tiffany & Co. celebrated their 30-year collaboration by launching three latest collections. The new designs depicted a combination of graffiti and scribbles as well as Moroccan grid patterns for the creation of her “Marrakesh” collection.
Paloma Picasso’s creations are an awesome sight; being gifted with a strong sense of creativity, Paloma looks to her surroundings to acquire ideas for jewelry designs. The brand’s bracelets, necklaces, pendants, and other ornaments depict geometric shapes that are clean, intertwined or of various other patterns; the symbols used are a representation of infinity, peace, love or other feelings. Picasso is charmed by scribbles and graffiti; as is emphasized by the impressive engravings in her ornaments. Her creations are made using various materials: silver, gold, copper or bronze; jewelry emitting a glittering splendor of actual treasures.
