MEA AYAYA

MEA AYAYA in Sardinian means: my grandmother. Mine held me in her arms one last time and gave me her wedding ring: a golden filigree ring, a marvelous piece of craftsmanship that I have always seen in my family. Paying homage to this lineage, to this traditional Sardinian jewel and offering the women of my generation the sparkle of a timeless and meaningful jewel by supporting a craftsmanship of excellence and the expertise of an ancestral know-how. Our jewels are exclusively made in a workshop in the heart of Sardinia and delivered in a minimalist/recyclable packaging. A JEWEL, A GRANDMOTHER: at the heart of this project, the ineffable bond that unites a grandmother to her granddaughter.
