Announcement   VENA AMORIS IS LATIN FOR, "VEIN OF LOVE".
Traditional belief established that this vein ran directly from the heart to the fourth finger of the left hand. This theory has been cited in western cultures as one of the reasons the engagement ring and/or wedding ring was placed on the fourth finger, or "ring finger". It is to be noted that this traditional belief is a fallacy as all the fingers in the hand
have a similar vein structure. The belief may not be true, but vein of the love story is for each client.

Tesia Alexandra started designing and creating jewelry after being an engagement and wedding ring blogger. She had a thirst to not just look at other people's work, but to fully understand the process. Vena Amoris stemmed from her fascination with the idea of the engagement ring throughout history.

Vena Amoris brand, much like the jewelry, stems from those historic beliefs. From the ancient Greek's using a string of hemp to tie it onto a lover’s finger to the advent of the diamond ring in the 1900's, traditions changed but the sentiment was always there. There are no traditions when it comes to love, and the designs of Vena Amoris take that into account, creating each piece by hand using a variety of materials. Based on a love of art history, Vena’s style is romantic, bohemian and whimsical, a gift
brought back through time for the ages. Each piece is uniquely handcrafted to fit the situation using a variety of metals and precious gems.

Since it's creation, Vena has been about ethical practice understanding gold if not all is in part recycled. Committed to being ethical,
environmental aware and transparent with clients from star to finish in our process. These include recycled metals and works with vender that also have suitable practices. Vena Amoris also goes out of it's way to work with ethical gemstone vendors. Vena uses everything, from reclaimed, ethically mined to synthetic gemstones.

She has been recognized by Refinery 29, The Huffington Post, and Etsy many times over for her unique style, affordability and ethical jewelry. Vena
was a 2015 Martha Stewart American Made Finalist.

Beautiful necklace and speedy shipping! My only concern is that I think I'm going to have to upgrade to a locking clasp. It came with a hook type clasp and I looked down numerous times the one day I wore the necklace to find it unclad ped and falling off. I'm a little disappointed in that. Beautiful work though! Thanks for shipping so quickly.

About

Bespoke One Of a Kind Romantic, Bohemian and Whimsical Wedding Jewelry

Tesia Alexandra started designing and creating jewelry after being an engagement and wedding ring blogger. She had a thirst to not just look at work but fully understanding the process.

Vena Amoris stemmed from her fascination with the idea of the engagement ring throughout history. It's rumored the ancient Romans would give a string of hemp and tie it onto a lover’s finger as a remembrance. Puritans in the early colonial period of the United States customarily refused to wear jewelry based on the belief of it being ostentatious and frivolous, and would instead exchange a thimble at the time of betrothal. After the wedding, the thimble's cup was often cut off and the rim would be worn as a ring.
Her bespoke work is based on her love of art history. The majority of which is Middle Ages and Renaissance religious art and most of all Mideast and Mediterranean jewelry. Vena’s style is romantic, bohemian and whimsical.

She has been recognized by Refinery 29, Huffington post and Etsy many times over for her unique style, affordability and ethical jewelry.
