Fred Magnanimi’s summers were spent in his family’s factory watching his father create beautiful, handcrafted jewelry. He and his brother Danny were amazed at how their father could envision a piece before it was made, oftentimes seeing the finished product even before the sketches were complete.
In 2013, Fred’s younger brother Danny lost a difficult battle with cancer. Danny was 33 years old and his dream was to re-invent our family’s jewelry manufacturing business which, like many American factories, had experienced difficult times due to overseas competition.
Even during his toughest times, Danny was very optimistic about his dreams, and Fred wasn’t going to let cancer take that away from him. So he left his job as an investment banker, relocated his family back to Rhode Island, and launched a company in Danny’s memory. They are located in the same factory that they ran around in as kids and Danny’s passion comes through in everything they make. The name Luca + Danni comes from Fred’s two children, whom Danny absolutely adored.
Luca + Danni is proud to carry on a deeply rooted family tradition and to handcraft jewelry that is uncompromised in its construction. They are Born In The USA and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Luca + Danni products are handcrafted using a variety of high-quality materials and finishes. As a result, there may be some natural variation in the individual pieces due to the handcrafted nature of our production process. A few easy steps will ensure your Luca + Danni bracelets will remain as brilliant as the day they were purchased.
Their bracelets are made with either naturally oxidized brass or silver plated wire. Over time, a natural aging process may occur — especially with the brass jewelry — based on the care given to the individual piece.
Prior to wearing Luca + Danni products, be sure that all lotion and/or perfume products are fully absorbed into your skin as direct contact may result in oxidation. Remove jewelry before swimming, exercising and prior to bedtime. After each use, gently wipe with a soft jewelry cloth and preferably store in a jewelry box. Always use a jewelry cloth when cleaning the jewelry as paper towel and other abrasive products may result in scratches. If additional cleaning is needed, use warm water and a mild soap. Rinse jewelry and gently pat dry. Lastly, they do not suggest using jewelry cleaner as the solution may remove the clear coat protective seal.
