About

Everything has a story to tell ...

I am deadly attracted by old objects. I love handwritten letters, pictures, handbags and jewelry because their stories are often long, mysterious and adventurous.

Everything started because I received two rings.

My dad gave me an old band ring, handmade by my grandfather for grandmother.
First mystery: the ring is soldered and my grandfather did not know how to solder.
Second mystery: how it was created? Was it made with a coin?

My mom gave me a silver "Turkish promise ring" (4 bands puzzle ring) bought in the 70's during one long road trip to Middle East.
First adventure: the ring from Turkey was brought to Italy. The 4 bands accidentally lost their order. I received the ring and wore the unsolved puzzle because none was able to solve it.
Second adventure: the ring was brought back to the home land, Turkey, after 35 years of being in Italy. My parents found an artisan able to solve the puzzle and brought the ring back to me.

A simple metal band ring can have great sentimental value despite the value of the material. The kilometers that my parents did with the Turkish ring made my present, to my eyes, more precious than diamonds!

If you receive or donate something vintage you receive or donate a story, a long, mysterious and adventurous story ...
This is the reason why I started this exciting adventure:
