About Valeria
IMG_1430.jpg

My name is Valeria and I am the founder of Valeria's Secret. My mother is a professional artist. Being surrounded by beautiful objects and pictures from a very young age, I have developed a love for everything beautiful and well-made. Interestingly, one of my favourite childhood books was a book about gemstones. It fascinated my mind with how scientifically sophisticated and aesthetically beautiful gems are. As I grew up, I forgot about this passion and pursued a career in education, however, later in life, I had a calling.

I came up with the idea of making jewellery and creating the brand in the spring of 2019 while doing Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics at the University of Barcelona and teaching English. It all started because I wanted simple yet stunning diamond stud earrings. After shopping around, however, I realized how pricey they can be, I also couldn't find exactly what I wanted. That's when I decided to make my own pair.

 

The majority of my ancestors were artistically talented craftsmen, so I felt I could learn goldsmithing. The delight of making my own pieces was enormous. I also realized that I could offer the best quality products at the best prices on the market. On top of that, I was offering something priceless - my love and passion put into handmade pieces.

I have found my calling in life which gave me enormous relief, a surge of happiness, and transformed my entire life and personality. Valeria's Secret is filled with these emotions: the excitement of a discovery, the happiness of finding your true self, and the passion for practical beauty. ​
