TSTQCA. It is difficult to guess the meaning of this acronym even for those who speak Italian. The acronym, in fact, means “You are everything I love” (Tu Sei Tutto Quello Che Amo). The idea was by Guido Spallanzani, son of the founder Carlo Spallanzani of one of the most exclusive jewelers in Milan, founded in 1880. The initials appeared, as a dedication to his wife Rosabianca, on a bracelet in 1970. That bracelet was then followed from others, to become the Only You collection, the most famous of the Maison. But bracelets don’t necessarily summarize a sentence. On the other hand, jewels contain a word, like the traditionals Love, Peace, but also the ironic Not Today and even Ex Wife, in case you want to happily communicate your divorce.
The jewels, made by artisans in the Vicenza district, are in 18-karat gold, yellow, pink or white, while the words are composed with a pavé of diamonds. The same line includes chevalier rings, however, made up of a single letter of the alphabet and earrings, which instead form words like those of bracelets or instead with single letters.
