万里同風 /One wind for a thousand miles/
Collection by Latvian designer Anna Fanigina (brand VERBA (“words”)) is dedicated to blooming sakura. Each jewelry embodies a blossom — flying in the wind, carrying a message in Japanese, Latin аnd Ancient Greek. As an antique metaphor of peace and harmony says, “One wind for a thousand miles” is blowing, banding different ages and cultures. All collection rings are handmade from silver and natural stones: rock crystals, topazes, rose quartzes.
Jewellery with stones from the TERES collection (“rounded” in Latin) are like ancient messages polished by the ocean and carefully carried on shore; they bring happiness to everyone who finds them. The special meaning of each piece can be discovered by the Latin inscriptions – little mysteries written under the transparent lens of natural amethysts, aquamarines, topazes and rock crystals.
Little teddy bears have become universal favorites and great friends of humanity, suddenly finding themselves the heirs of the ancient cult of the bear, which existed in many cultures in the past. The collection URSIS – charming bear images, gifted to our loved ones to remind them of our love and support and in the giving bringing happiness to oneself.
VERBA – “words” are the main source of inspiration to make jewellery, and each piece has an inscription in Latin. Latin, with its meaningful and laconic expression, plays a role in a peculiar “code” in a never-ending stream of messages to humanity embedded on rings, earrings, and brooches…
Once a year VERBA turns its hand to shiny faces of rock crystals, topazes, amethysts and tourmaline so that we can shine together with them by the time the first snow comes. Latin phrases and sincere wishes that jewellery of the SPLENDOR (“luster”,”magnificence”, “purity” (Latin)) collection bears, can transform every precious stone into a magic crystal that descends into our arms. Yet this snowflake will not melt. It will bring joy with its playful reflections, reminding us of the miracle of light.
Faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love” – with this quotation from the First Epistle to the Corinthians by Paul the Apostle brand VERBA starts its jewelry line COMPOSITIO (composition, union in Latin). You can wear each jewelry of this line not just separately, but easely combine them with others, making your own accord from multicolored stones, ideas and concepts.Faith is symbolised by transparent rock crystal, hope – by rose quartz and love – by red tourmaline.
Collection called RES (“things”) reinvents the ancient tradition of decorating everyday things with memorable, protective, glorifying or even comic inscriptions. This collection includes handmade water glasses, silver spoons and bookmarks, fully embodying the philosophy and aesthetics of the brand, where clean lines, refinement and usability of the form are combined with semantic fullness.

„Tango” (from „tangere” in Latin) means „tо touch, to reach, to excite, to feel..” and although the genuine etymology to dance title is different, this beautiful coincidence suited very well for the name of collection and messages on the jewelry. Gender balance that is so important in tango is respected and collection offers jewelry not only for women, but for men as well. There are men rings, cuff links, bracelets, tie clips and women rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Silver and silver with gilding are the main materials and stones that complement the collection are transparent rock crystal (symbolizes sincerity), dark smoky quartz (concentration), rose quartz (tenderness) and garnet as thick as red wine (love).„Powered by love” — one the main collection motives, because it is the philosophy of tango.
