Guglielmo Cini was an Italian jewelry maker.
He came to the United States in 1922 at the age of 17
and set up a shop in Boston Massachusetts, where he remained until 1957.
During that time he and one of his designers, Felipe Mendosa,
created both fine and costume jewelry using hand crafted, master jeweler techniques.
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.
US medal sterling replica:
Obverse: Jesus crossing the Sea of Galilee on the boat.
At one point in the Bible (Mark 4:36) Jesus and His disciples
are crossing the Sea of Galilee in a boat when a great storm arises.
Unmoved, Jesus sleeps in the back of the boat until the men, terrified, wake Him.
A few words from Jesus and all is well again, accompanied by the quiet question
'where is your faith, men?' In other words, it is a 'security in the storm' moment.
For this medal, IN TEMPESTATE SECURITAS is Latin for 'security in the weather.'
The patron saint George (S GEORGIVS PATRONVS)
on his horse (EQVITVM) slaying a dragon,
a Christian tradition adapted from Eastern Orthodoxy.
