I have one locket. It’s an old military insignia on gold with an inscription on the back. It was my great-great-Aunt’s and she carried it with her while her husband was away at war. Inside is a picture of them when they first married and next to it is a picture of them as an old couple. Everytime I wear it, I feel as though I am carrying something bigger than myself inside the small compartment. It’s as though there is a world that opens up with the click of the lock and I feel lighter with it on, strange as that may sound. This locket has traveled and it tells a story and I firmly believe that any jewelry that stands the test of time does the same. Jewelry travels, my friends. It goes places. And it is our job to keep it moving.
Hunter NY created by Jennifer Monzon and David Ansvananda , embodies the idea that your jewelry should be an extension of your aesthetic while still taking you somewhere new. Hunter NY is “where natural meets handmade. Where antique personality meets modern design.” These are the types of pieces where stories of the people who wear them etch themselves to the underbelly. These are the types of pieces you hand down to your children (and so on). Hunter NY is a line which travels while standing the test of time. It is our job to keep it moving.
