Innovative Jewelry Crafting: The Dannunzio Difference



Nothing in natural diamond jewelry compares to Dannunzio’s Mirror Collection — a line that has a look unparalleled in the industry.

“I have spent the past 15 years perfecting an assembly technique that shows off a genuine diamond’s luster to its fullest,” says Artie Dannunzio, CEO of Dannunzio. “No one matches our mirror effect. Each piece of jewelry we design hides a mirror of polished gold within. When we suspend a diamond above this mirror, refracted light glimmers around and through each facet of the stone. This enhances a diamond’s brilliance in such a way that even professionals have difficulty determining its actual size.”

Deep below the earth’s surface, where temperatures rise to 1,300 degrees Celsius, and pressures build to 50,000 times that of the atmosphere, carbon atoms crystallize into diamonds. Just like snowflakes, each natural diamond has a unique pattern that tells the story of its intense formation, and no two diamonds are alike.

The rare and unique beauty of natural diamonds inspired Dannunzio’s innovation. His brand is committed to showcasing each stone’s individual story with fresh and distinct artistry.

Dannunzio’s Mirror Collection bears the distinction of integrating one of the few design-related patents in the jewelry sector. While innovators in this space commonly apply for patents for mechanisms such as clasps or watch mechanics, they rarely protect their designs. After all, centuries of design revolve primarily around similar ways to twist, curve, and bend metal.

At last, however, the Mirror Collection offers a fresh design worthy of a formal patent. Above all else, this innovation fulfills Dannunzio’s long-standing dream to revolutionize natural diamond jewelry with something utterly new.

Inserting the miniature gold mirror inside a new piece of jewelry and setting the diamond above takes a skilled craftsman over two months. Each item incorporating Dannunzio’s revolutionary assembling technique is obviously the result of considerable effort and care.

“Seeing a person’s thrill as they take in a diamond’s splendor from every vantage point makes all our hard work worthwhile,” Dannunzio explains. I can’t even begin to convey the visual impact — you just have to see it for yourself.

Diamonds are forever, which is why Dannunzio honors each natural diamond with both innovation and a design worthy of its long-lasting elegance. His Mirror Collection is careful to respect both progress and tradition. Though each diamond sparkles and flashes in wholly new ways, its setting integrates classic and time-honored elements.

This tie between tradition and originality springs from a family legacy that spans decades. When he was a young boy, Dannunzio watched his grandfather and father create exquisite jewelry completely by hand, leaning over their shoulders as they formed wax prototypes for each unique work of art.

Even at that young age, Dannunzio remembers an intense curiosity about how his family’s jewelry designs came to be. He could see the quality and attention to detail his father put into every piece, and desperately wanted to be a part of it.

“My grandfather and father had ready access to twisted metal wire, just like any other jeweler of the day,” he recalls, “but instead of purchasing this, they chose to twist their own wire every time. To ensure the best quality, they painstakingly finished each item by hand. After 40 years at the helm, I still take my cues from them. I continue to value the one-of-a-kind quality of handmade goods over the convenience of mass production.”

Like his family, Dannunzio sets himself apart as both a master artisan and an innovative designer. He began working alongside his father full-time at the age of 14. “When I started, I was delivering coffee and sweeping the shop floor. Finally, I worked my way to the position I dreamed of for so long: jewelry design.”

Despite unconventional designs, Dannunzio upholds the value of tradition. “My goal is to provide the world fresh takes on tried-and-true styles,” he concludes. “Progress in any field requires people to take risks. In innovative diamond jewelry design, this means breathing fresh life into established concepts by trying them in novel contexts. By bringing inspiration to the industry’s long tradition of craftsmanship, we can give the world entirely unexpected designs in natural diamond jewelry, such as the Mirror Collection.”

Is Envirem Skin Defense The EMF/5G Answer?



Looking for a way to detox from environmental toxins? Envirem can offer tips and advice on how to avoid toxins and live a healthier life. Whether it’s in the form of air pollution, water contamination, or even the food we eat, toxins are everywhere. But there are ways to protect ourselves and our families from these harmful substances. Envirem is here to help you make the best choices for your health and the environment. Envirem is the perfect solution for those looking for an effective way to protect their health and prevent disease and aging caused by environmental factors.

The skin is the largest organ of the body, and therefore, is the first line of defense from the harmful effects of the environment, disease, illness, toxins, and heavy metals. Current technologies lack to fully address the monitoring and identifying of skin needs as well as delivering pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, biotechnology, vitamins, formulas, and oils. Even at its optimal condition, skin has limitations as it pertains to temperature, pH, conductivity, water resistance, chemical/solvent resistance, and flexibility and durability. Dr. Christina Rahm’s patent-pending skin coating innovation acts as a first line of defense from outside invaders such as environmental pollutants, disease, illness, toxins, and heavy metals. The structure of the skin coating incorporates a formula using stabilized ionic silver, citric acid, and nano-sized zeolite solutions in combination with iron oxide nanoparticles.

Dr. Rahm’s innovation integrates inflammation-free, highly gas-permeable, ultra-thin, lightweight and stretchable sensors through a conductive nano-mesh structure to utilize the skin as a wireless system that could detect, identify, and provide protection and remove bacteria, viruses, funguses, parasites, toxins, heavy metals, nuclear waste, pollution, and pesticides/herbicides which causes disease and aging.

Envirem Skin Defense uses a patent-pending, proprietary blend of orthosilicic acid, hypochlorous acid, vitamins, and minerals aimed to guard your skin from environmental pollutants while positioning itself to deeply nourish and moisturize the skin. While Envirem Skin Defense does not make claims to be anti-microbial, anti-bacterial or anti-pesticide, it was developed with the goal of providing further protection to your skin against the dangers of 5G technology, EMF radiation, heavy metals, viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi.

Key ingredients include:

  • Water
  • Hypochlorous Acid
  • Orthosilicic Acid Blend
  • vitamin C
  • aloe vera
  • Vitamin B3
