I am over and above psyched to talk about this extremely distinctive piece of jewellery that was manufactured just for my son, Gino. As an Italian-American, I discovered a void in the American jewellery sector for outdated college Italian religious medals — these heirloom pieces that we would obtain as kids with every single sacrament we accomplished, from Baptism on up to Affirmation. Italian safety medals that ended up presented to us by spouse and children and worn every single single working day, turning out to be a element of our identification. All I’ve been ready to come across are low cost looking ones that resemble mall kiosk jewelry and not what I required — which was a piece that looked as even though I traveled to Italy and brought again with me to reward and have it come to be a family members treasure.
That is right until I saw the Security Assortment recently introduced by fellow Italian-American, Brooklyn-born and NYC eternally, Angela Louison of Louison Exceptional + Wonderful. This selection not only reflects her upbringing but is a legacy in the building. These security medallions attribute the very best craftsmanship, every single handmade in NYC’s diamond district. There is rather a handful of to pick from, with diverse saints and some depicting zodiac indications, so there is a thing for everyone. I like all the wide range of designs and a variety of themes jogging in the course of the collection.
Gino’s exclusive medal depicts St. Anthony, the founder saint. Gino’s real identify is Anthony Gino, so I considered that was fitting (named Anthony after my father, who is Antonio). Angela manufactured it even far more specific by customizing the quatrefoil shaped medal and adding Gino’s birthstone to it (emeralds for Might). I just adore how it turned out and I know he will be wearing it for many years to appear. It makes me psychological to feel that he will maybe move it down to his son or daughter one particular day…but let’s not get also ahead of ourselves.
I very suggest checking out Louison Uncommon + Fine and paging by means of their Defense Assortment. That specific family heirloom awaits!
