Beautiful Signed Cini Sterling Silver 3-D Capricorn Medallion Disk

Beautiful Signed Cini Sterling Silver 3-D Capricorn Medallion Disk

Guglielmo Cini, who was an Italian jewelry maker, came to the United States in 1922 at the age of 17 and set up his company in Boston Massachusetts until 1970. During that time he and one of his designers, Felipe Mendosa, created both fine and costume jewelry using hand crafted, master jeweler techniques. Cini jewelry was primarily sterling pieces reflecting classical and renaissance influences, and it is considered some of the finest among American made sterling jewelry. The early pieces were marked "Guglielmo Sterling" in a rectangular box.

Guglielmo Cini frequently incorporated faceted colored rhinestones in his designs. The jewelry was high quality and began to attract a clientele in the Hollywood film and theater business. In 1957 Cini moved his operations to Laguna Beach, California and remained there until his death in 1979.

Many of the Cini pieces are reproductions of antique jewelry, but he also produced many original creations. Most of the later pieces are signed "Cini" or "Cini Sterling". Cini vintage jewelry is highly collectible today and sought after by avid collectors. The company went out of business in 1970, but was reopened by Cini's granddaughters in 1993 in Solana Beach California.

This handsome and bold, large sterling silver medallion honors the person born under the Zodiac sign of Capricorn. Cini often used the zodiac for inspiration and incorperated his designs into brooches, medallions and other elaborate pieces.

For those born under the influence Capricorn, transiting from December 22 to January 19 of each year, they are the most determined of the entire Zodiac! The most prominent qualities of the Goats, as they are called, are that they are ambitious, conservative, determined, practical and helpful. They make good team leaders and organizers, because of their single-minded focus on their work, sense of responsibility and sincerity. They are perceived by people around them to be workaholics, unemotional and detached. Sometimes their negative qualities – suspicious, resentful, inhibited, pessimistic and stubborn – are seen clearly, but deep inside the Goat is a humble heart. They are soft, and their hard outer shells are meant to guard themselves against the hurt caused by rejection.

The diameter of the medallion measures a substantial 2 1/2 inches. The loop is half an inch. The chain is very impressive - perfect for the strength of the pendant!
