I am beyond energized to discuss about this extremely distinctive piece of jewelry that was produced just for my son, Gino. As an Italian-American, I noticed a void in the American jewellery sector for outdated faculty Italian spiritual medals — these heirloom items that we would receive as young children with every sacrament we finished, from Baptism on up to Confirmation. Italian defense medals that were being presented to us by loved ones and worn just about every solitary day, starting to be a element of our identification. All I’ve been in a position to discover are low-cost searching kinds that resemble shopping mall kiosk jewelry and not what I desired — which was a piece that seemed as even though I traveled to Italy and introduced back again with me to present and have it turn out to be a spouse and children treasure.
That’s right until I observed the Protection Assortment not too long ago introduced by fellow Italian-American, Brooklyn-born and NYC endlessly, Angela Louison of Louison Unusual + Good. This selection not only displays her upbringing but is a legacy in the earning. These safety medallions characteristic the finest craftsmanship, just about every handmade in NYC’s diamond district. There is rather a couple to opt for from, with various saints and some depicting zodiac symptoms, so there is a little something for all people. I adore all the range of shapes and numerous themes running in the course of the assortment.
Gino’s special medal depicts St. Anthony, the founder saint. Gino’s genuine identify is Anthony Gino, so I assumed that was fitting (named Anthony immediately after my dad, who is Antonio). Angela produced it even a lot more distinctive by customizing the quatrefoil formed medal and adding Gino’s birthstone to it (emeralds for May). I just like how it turned out and I know he will be wearing it for decades to arrive. It tends to make me emotional to believe that he will probably pass it down to his son or daughter a person day…but let’s not get way too in advance of ourselves.
I highly advise checking out Louison Exceptional + Fantastic and paging by way of their Safety Collection. That particular relatives heirloom awaits!
