Your Inner Circle

A special token for mothers and grandmothers, Mary Steratore's necklace is an artistic interpretation of the bond they share with their children and grandchildren. The outermost 22k gold vermeil ring represents the protector and encircles a family of smaller sterling silver rings for her children. Up to four nested rings ripple out from the center, from youngest to oldest. Each personalized pendant is presented on a card printed with the complementary quote, "Our family is a circle of faith and love, with every birth and union it grows, every experience faced together makes the circle stronger." Handmade in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

It can be daunting trading one career for another, especially when there are PhDs involved. But for Mary Steratore, such a change led to the realization of true artistic expression. Leaving archaeology to create her own fine art, Steratore settled in Rome, where her paintings and sculptures were well-received. After showing her work throughout Italy and the US, she developed a new line of jewelry inspired by her sculpture.

                I bought this for my mother-in-law for her birthday. She has four children so I got four silver rings. Actually more pretty in person. She loved it!

                  My daughter loves this necklace. It honors the poignant reality that she has 3 adorable and vibrant children blessing her and her husband, but their first born died from a freak and dreaded event that was fatal to the full term baby and almost to her. They honor the reality that they gave birth to 4 children and this necklace is a lovely statement to that reality.

                      Came as described and it was perfect for what I wanted. It's not some stamped out mass produced piece that you'll find exact copies of our and about. There are minor variances from the hand made creation process.
