"I have been a loyal customer with Vannucci for over 7 years now because any time I wear or give any of Justine's pieces, I get the most amazing compliments! I mean, have you seen anything else like the Asymmetrical Hoop earrings? Classy enough to wear in the office, but edgy enough to show your style. Justine was so easy to work with when I wanted to do some custom pieces for my wedding. She worked with me to design both a ring and necklace that would match my wedding theme for each of my bridesmaids. They were so well made and absolutely stunning. Truly a unique gift. Another one of my favorite gifts to give to my loved one is the Create-Your-Own necklace (they really are perfect for new mom gifts or Mother's Day). I just pick the birthstones, a letter, and what metals I want, and it shows up all wrapped up all so nicely. So easy to do and they really are such a great piece to have in your collection. They are delicate enough to layer them with another piece, yet bold enough to wear on their own. I get so excited when I hear a new collection is coming out! Justine has quite the talent for curating colorways that tell a story and picking stones that are gorgeous and distinct." Tara Macomber, Phoenixville, PA

My grandfather, Putsee Salvatore Vannucci, was a first generation Italian-American. He met my grandmother in the early 1940's, but they were forced to run away to Virginia to get married because she was protestant and he was catholic. Their families did not approve. Upon returning to Williamsport, PA they began their new life by opening a photography business - Vannucci Foto Services, which was run by my grandfather (and his brother) until the mid 90's. He got his big break by photographing flood destruction in 1946 and turning it into a book. However, his interest in the art of photography stretched back to high school. He photographed everything from celebrities to accidents to aerials during his career. However, his most notable achievement is photographing every Little League World Series from its inception in 1947 until he passed in 2007. I am honored and humbled to carry on in the creative arts under the Vannucci name.
