Meet Marlene - Co-Founder, Visionary & Creative Director German native. Artist. Designer. World traveler.
Marlene is the creative force behind Paul Valentine. In her designs, she draws on inspiration from her travels, her love for fashion and design, and an unwavering commitment to empowering women all over the globe.
“Helping others feel beautiful from the inside out is something that makes me incredibly happy. I love seeing women feel empowered." - Marlene, Co-founder & Creative Director
When she’s not in the studio working on Paul Valentine’s latest collection, you’ll find her scouting fashion around the world, listening to customers’ feedback, or scrolling through the latest trends on social media. Proudly wearing Paul Valentine pieces herself every day, she’s always on the hunt for the perfect layering or ultimate stack, and once she finds it, it won’t come off for a while - not even in the shower or for a dip in the sea!
Paul Valentine’s style is a sophisticated blend of timeless elegance, minimalist design, and a dash of luxury. With vintage vibes and a modern luxurious twist, we provide jewelry that you can style every day - with any outfit, for any occasion. Handmade from the finest materials, our jewelry meets high-quality standards and will last you a lifetime.
We strive to make pieces that can be combined across collections, so you are inspired to be creative and find your perfect layering or ultimate stack.
Your potential is what drives our mission! Our jewelry is here to help you unleash your power, share your personal story, and show the world your unique style.
Sustainability is one of our core values. With a semi-truck of plastic landing in our precious oceans every minute, we’ve said goodbye to plastic once and for all. Most of our jewelry is made from 100% recycled stainless steel and comes in 100% recyclable packaging. Made from grass fiber, a highly renewable resource, our shipping cartons are 100% compostable and use minimal water and energy during production.
Yes, that means zero plastic, zero chemicals, and a minimal carbon footprint. Win-win-win. For you. For Us. For Mother Earth.
