I am beyond energized to discuss about this very unique piece of jewelry that was created just for my son, Gino. As an Italian-American, I discovered a void in the American jewelry marketplace for previous college Italian religious medals — these heirloom parts that we would receive as kids with just about every sacrament we done, from Baptism on up to Affirmation. Italian security medals that have been given to us by family members and worn each and every single working day, becoming a component of our identity. All I’ve been capable to obtain are low cost wanting types that resemble shopping mall kiosk jewellery and not what I preferred — which was a piece that seemed as however I traveled to Italy and brought back with me to reward and have it become a spouse and children treasure.
Which is right up until I saw the Security Collection recently introduced by fellow Italian-American, Brooklyn-born and NYC endlessly, Angela Louison of Louison Unusual + High-quality. This selection not only displays her upbringing but is a legacy in the generating. These defense medallions characteristic the best craftsmanship, just about every handmade in NYC’s diamond district. There is fairly a number of to pick out from, with diverse saints and some depicting zodiac signals, so there’s one thing for every person. I like all the variety of styles and different themes working in the course of the selection.
Gino’s exclusive medal depicts St. Anthony, the founder saint. Gino’s true title is Anthony Gino, so I assumed that was fitting (named Anthony right after my father, who is Antonio). Angela manufactured it even more particular by customizing the quatrefoil formed medal and adding Gino’s birthstone to it (emeralds for Might). I just love how it turned out and I know he will be wearing it for decades to arrive. It will make me psychological to consider that he will possibly go it down to his son or daughter one day…but let us not get as well in advance of ourselves.
I hugely advise examining out Louison Exceptional + Good and paging by means of their Safety Assortment. That specific relatives heirloom awaits!
