I am Evangeline de Sosa and I founded DELVE. It all started as a “game” and it was not my intention to create a brand. It was more of a need to have to name the collections I had started exhibiting in galleries in Rome. Delve is an English word that means deep research. If we read the word backwards starting from the “E” we can see my name EVangeLinE De Sosa.
What is a jewel for you? What are the characteristics or adjectives that define it?
For me a jewel is not a simple object to embellish or complete an outfit. The jewel is an expression of our unconscious, because it is a means through which we express our way of being, through the choice of jewels. One of the important characteristics of Delve is the fact that it is a unique piece being handcrafted with irregular shapes, but which in its totality is harmonious, elegant and feminine.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find the inspirations in nature, the decorative arts within the basilicas, but above all, in the human body.
How would you describe your style?
It is an elegant, feminine style – but at the same time, it is unconventional.
How is a Delve jewel born?
A Delve jewel is born starting from the search for inspiration, elaboration of the design and creation of the wax prototype, through which it undergoes many variations, which depend on the emotions I have while creating it.
New projects or ideas you are working on?
Now I am also focusing on the other line I have created: Delve Medical Jewelry. They are pieces of jewelry exclusively for healthcare professionals, so the jewelry is not only inspired by the human body but also by the tools that are used in that profession.
What are the distinctive features of your brand? Why choose you?
Delve jewels are chosen because they are unique in their design, they are jewels that highlight the charm of a strong woman with character by choosing a design above all, inspired by the anatomy of the body.
