From meeting at a friends dinner party in Los Angeles, to becoming instant friends, and eventually starting a thriving accessories brand named VereVerto, Paige Smith and Consuelo Chozas's partnership is pure kismet. 

VereVerto, founded and based in Los Angeles in 2013, blends luxury with functionality for women on-the-go, and fashion with modern day practicality. Their accessories are not only convertible and fitting for any occasion, they're designed to live as essentials in any wardrobe. By utilizing vegetable tanning without chromium, each piece has a rich patina that ages gracefully over time.
