- Meaningful, hand-made pendants that carry life stories with them
- Partnering with non-profit organizations to raise awareness and funds through sharing profits
April 20, 2015; Boston, MA: LOLA™ & Co. today announced they have launched their new brand, bringing beautiful, high quality, handcrafted pendants which mark important moments in people’s lives. Beginning with their popular pendants and chains, the company is expanding to include bracelets, cufflinks, rings and other jewelry, while also offering commissioned pieces for individuals, families and organizations.
“Each LOLA™ pendant is one-of-a-kind – just like the person who wears it,” said founder and CEO, Lil Guerrera.
With meaningful symbols including angels, compasses, stars, sand dollars, and more, many of the pendants also include inspirational words engraved into the back, further imbuing every individual piece with meaning.
LOLA™ pendants are often given as gifts, to bring courage, strength, hope, comfort and joy to family and friends who have overcome adversity or continue to be challenged.
Pendants are also given simply to express friendship, gratitude and love, and are cherished by those who wear them as a means to carry with them a feeling of great honor.
“LOLA™ pendants are collected, and combined, as a way to layer not only the beautiful pendants themselves, but as a way to share original stories and experiences,” Ms. Guerrera said. “Whether it’s an Angel pendant given to a mother bravely fighting cancer, a Compass pendant given to a student starting college, a St. Christopher pendant given to a constant traveler, or simply a Sand Dollar pendant that carries the memories of a beach vacation…these are very special pieces.”
Ms. Guerrera is building on the success over the last six years, and partnering with top retailers including DeScenza Diamonds in the Boston market, to expand the availability of LOLA™ pendants while also expanding the line to include new products.
The company’s tagline is: Love one, love all.™
