About Andrea Ventura
Award-winning fine jewelry designer, Andrea Carnasciali-Ventura, is mostly known for her “contemporary meets old world” style, special cut stones and silver and gold creations. She has been awarded a finalist in the De Beers Diamond Awards, winner of the prestigious World Gold Council Trends Award and a winner of the Ponte d’Oro Italian Contest.
From an early age, Andrea expressed her love of precious stones and metals. As a young girl, she attended mineral and semi-precious stone courses along with her mother, a noted landscape designer, who used gemstone colors and designs in various combinations with plants.
In NY, Andrea started her career at a company that designed fashion jewelry for Donna Karan. She left to pursue a career in fine jewelry and moved to Florida to work for a Bangkok-based jewelry manufacturer. It was during this time the designer experienced one of the biggest thrills — obtaining special access into the Pope's library and designing a Vatican-inspired collection.
