Custom jewelry is the best part of jewelry, as it refers to pieces with personal stories you can carry with you all the times, like a precious talisman. Besides our passion for variety of statements pieces, including ornamental single earring or a set of stacked rings, we have come to realize that our hearts naturally go to the kind of jewels that express something particular by that we refer to meaningful jewelry.
A jewel that conveys a message is the genuine story behind the Spallanzani “Only You” bracelet. The piece was born in the 1970’s from the idea of Guido Spallanzani, the son of the brand’s founder, who was looking for something special to gift his wife Rosabianca for Valentine’s Day. He finally surprised her with a coded bracelet on where it was written “TSTQCA (tu sei tutto quello che amo translated in English by “you are everything that I love”. What a lovely way to show his wife his endless love and make the present memorable? Spallanzani has been one of the first jewelers to spot on the trend for customizable bracelets and that’s why he has dedicated them an entire collection that revisits the signature piece of jewel. Whether it is mantra-inspired piece as the think pink bracelet adorned with pink sapphires, or a declaration of love to your bestie (this time, set with white sapphires), you will find at Spallanzani the most exciting bracelets you put once and never take off!
