New Treasures!

A Mano is very excited to present a new addition to our jewelry case, exquisite work by Francesca Lacagnina. Inspired by nature and the jewels of antiquity, Francesca creates pieces that are simultaneously old and new. We're drawn to her amazing attention to detail, extraordinary craftsmanship and quality materials. See the one-of-a-kind, emerald cut, rough diamond ring set in 18 carat gold shown above.

"Everything is connected. 'That’s what I love about jewelry,' she says. 'It encompasses history, mythology, personal feelings. It connects with every culture and speaks to it. It connects us with the meanings of stones, their healing qualities.' The forms of antiquity and of the natural world that find their way into Francesca’s pieces are transformed by a modern sensibility, into jewelry that’s fresh and contemporary, but never loses sight of its roots."
