< la mamma del mediterranio ( Mother from Mediterranean)

August 9, 2013
Anna-Maria is 68, and comes from the Mediterranean coastal area of Italy; she is a traditional Italian Mama. After she married her husband Vittorio 45 years ago, her house in the country close to the ocean in South Italy became her whole world. She spends all her time and energy taking care of her husband and raising her three sons. Aside from her regular family duties, Anna-Maria loves the “Mare” (Ocean); taking a swim or a walk along the beach are her great pleasures when she has time to take a break from her daily routines.

When her eldest son came to us seeking something special to represent the sons’ love for their Mama, we decided to create a brooch rather than a ring or a necklace. (Although 68, Anna-Maria is an active housewife and still insists on doing all the house work herself – her long working hours would destroy a ring on her finger!).

The “Mare Waves” design represents Anna-Maria’s unconditional love in raising her 3 sons, personified by the three pearls, the small pearl slowly growing to the larger perfect stone. Graduated colors of a variety of blue topaz’ represent the ocean waves that Anna-Maria so loves.

We named this brooch design “la mamma del mediterranio” to show our respect to all those great mamas not just from the Mediterranean countries but throughout the world.

As the Italians say: niente e' meglio della mamma (Mama is the best!)
