dalla nonna. this modern line, which translates from italian to "from the grandmother," is designed by rebecca richards and jessica bohrer, college roommates who are now lawyers by day and jewelry designers by night. inspired by vintage pieces handed down from their mothers and grandmothers, becca & jess fell in love with the idea of taking something old and making it new again.
the collections. dalla nonna's signature piece, the calendar necklace® exemplifies dalla nonna's blend of tradition and trend. derived from an old tie pin of jess' grandpa howard, each piece is executed in 14k gold or sterling silver, and accented with a sapphire in a color chosen by the wearer to commemorate a date of her choosing. with its sleek and modern design, the calendar necklace® is a subtle statement piece that allows the wearer to hold a date that is close to her heart even closer still. dalla nonna continues to added to its chic ∙ custom ∙ vintage-inspired collections with sweet and personal designs like the little letters and the portafortuna (lucky charms) collection, featuring traditional good luck symbols (like the heart, wishbone & hamsa), as well dalla nonna's own personal good luck symbols (like the peony, honeycomb & a scatter of sparkle). dalla nonna's collections are handmade in the u.s.a.
in the press. since launching its first collection in 2009, dalla nonna has graced the pages of fashion magazines across the globe, including People StyleWatch, Shape, US Weekly, Teen Vogue, Entertainment Weekly, Real Simple, Vogue Latin America and Harpers Bazaar Ukraine (to name a few!) and has been featured on popular television programs like E!
