Following last year collaboration with Valentina Castellani Quinn, Prince Nereides just announced Valentina Castellani Quinn as another official muse of NEREIDES Diamond Elixir.


I am a friend of Valentina since years, and my family also. In the past, we already collaborated a few times for some entertainment projects such films presentations and not only. Last year, I partnered with Valentina to organize a memorable event we produced at the 77 Venice Film Festival as a special tribute to our beloved friend Lorenzo Soria, former President of HFPA/Golden Globes who passed away one month before and with whom I started my collaboration with Golden Globes whose members supported and attended our event in Venice in September 2020. During the event, I disclosed some of new projects I am developing with my Group such as biotechnology research, skincare, entertainment production and a few charity projects through NEREIDES Foundation. Cate Blanchett and Diego Boneta were special guests of the event together with selected international actors and film producers from Hollywood. Both Cate Blanchett and Diego Boneta were awarded with the exclusive Seguso Award for their commitment in the entertainment business and as an example for new generations. I personally awarded Cate Blanchett for her brilliant carrier and as a tangible example of women empowerment, one of main missions promoted by NEREIDES Group and Foundation. Cate Blanchett beauty and life inspired NEREIDES Diamond Elixir creation and concept which links luxury to philanthropy. A percentage of sales of skincare products is devolved to several sustainable projects including women empowerment, Lgbt rights and the protection of people living with albinism in Africa. In January 2021, I launched the NEREIDES Diamond Elixir skincare line during the Fashion Week in Paris and featuring my beloved model and muse Lilly Mandel. The quest of beauty has been a core value at NEREIDES since its foundation and in March 2021, after one year investment in biotechnology research, and as a coherent conclusion of my personal commitment to social and environmental sustainability and the event made with Cate Blanchett, I pursued my project on women empowerment disclosing a new spokesperson to interpret the NEREIDES Diamond Elixir values such resilience, women empowerment, and innovation. Valentina Castellani Quinn is a perfect muse for NEREIDES Diamond Elixir: she is not only a celebrity, but also a successful woman, and her lifestyle is an example of resilience, endurance, woman leadership and beauty”, stated Prince Nereides Antonio Giamundo de Bourbon.
