One of the great things about being married to an architect is I get beautiful jewelry. My husband has an eye for unusual pieces. He is the one who first introduced me to Monica Castiglioni and her work. I believe the first set he gave me was for my birthday, a few years ago. It was the bronze ring with the pearl, shown below. I was in love! I tried it on and it fit perfectly. He was relieved because at the time he purchased it, he did not know my ring size. If I remember right, I think he met Monica while looking at her rings and explained this to her. He asked if the rings could be resized. She said that because of how they are created, they cannot. If this ring fit me I was meant to have it, if it didn’t…well I’m not. He could bring it back. Fortunately, for me, it appears I was meant to have it.
So here are some photos from my collection of her jewelry. Holidays are coming soon and I have to say, I wouldn’t mind another addition.
