I’ve been looking for a piece of jewelry to mark my daughter’s birthday or her name for quite some time. I already have a lovely bracelet that has “My Little Girl” written on it (Thomas Sabo), which I thought to eventually engrave but then I came across Dalla Nonna a few months ago and have wanted one of their calendar necklaces ever since (insert huge 26th birthday hint here).
Just the story behind Dalla Nonna is special enough to make you want to get one of their beautiful pieces. Dalla Nonna translates from Italian to “from the grandmother” and their entire jewelry line is very vintage inspired. (By the way, are you sensing a bit of a vintage theme in my recent posts as well? I swear my boyfriend just told me if he hears me utter the word vintage one more time he is going to turn off the listen switch. Well, I love it so here it goes: vintageeeee!).
The design team behind Dalla Nonna’s jewelery are Rebecca Richards & Jessica Bohrer, who used to be college roommates and are now lawyers by day and jewelry designers by night. Two very busy ladies indeed! The Dalla Nonna signature piece is the calendar necklace, which includes a sapphire stone to mark your special day. You can change the colors of the stone or even choose an extra one if that’s your preference. Stunning, and oh so pretty!
Pricing depends on the model and whether you choose 14k gold or sterling silver and they ship in between 3-6 weeks (also depends on which design you get). International shipping is $55 + probable custom duties. Clearly, this is a one off special occasion present, perfect for baby presents, anniversaries, wedding gifts, and last but not least 26th birthday presents 🙂
