Mario Salvucci has been crossing boundaries in jewelry from Italy to the United States since the 80's. Don't purchase a cross necklace from anyone else! This is great example of "Catholic Guilt"... Resurrecting jewelry from Mario's New York City epoque, from then til now...**We are establishing new and responsible production methods as a result of these "unprecedented times". Every order that is not in stock or part of our inventory will be considered CUSTOM and will need additional time to execute during the transition. Consider yourself part of the process as the Bijules brand moves closer to a seamless manufacturing system with ethical practices as its essential code. Feel free to reply to your order confirmation with questions. Thank you for loving the Bijules brand and being our RIDE OR DIE!
