In 2008, I retired as president and co-owner of the largest, privately-owned jewelry company in the United States. After my retirement, however, my devotion and creative passion for fine jewelry continued and I decided to open a private studio of my own; one where I could continually indulge my appreciation and devotion for jewelry design. As an award-winning, second generation jewelry designer and goldsmith with over forty years of experience I am proud to present my most significant design yet: Your Family Cross.

My inspiration for Your Family Cross grew from a conversation many years ago between myself and my very dear friend, Jim DiCello, affectionately called “Jimmy D.”  He told me confidently,

JJ, this is the order: God, Family, Work.  If your priorities are straight, the decisions you make will be the right ones.

To this day, I still follow his advice.  The cross of Christ represents mine and all Christian’s faith and first priority. As an embodiment of this belief, I created a very special cross of my own.

Available in several sizes and either yellow or white gold, each Your Family Cross is set with exquisite and precious diamonds. However, it is the back of the cross that possesses its most priceless and personal secret. There, you will find the birthstones of each member of your family set into the most cherished symbol of your faith.  Their presence allows the wearer their loved ones always close at heart.

Through my creation of fine heirloom jewelry, I can express faith in my priorities: “God, Family, Work.”  You can enjoy this harmony, as well, by personalizing a Your Family Cross of your own, one that would be my pleasure to create especially for you. At our website you will find all the basic information for designing and creating your very own Your Family Cross.
