If a Gem Could Speak, What Would It Say?
Traditional lockets can hold a loved one's picture. But Momento jewelry can hold their voice. Though it looks like a traditional piece of pearl, gemstone or diamond jewelry, every pendant, earring or ring from the Momento Collection is embedded with an NFC (near field communication) chip that remains unseen to the naked eye. Using our Galatea app, a voice message can be recorded and played back whenever Momento Gem, Pearl or Diamond touches the enabled NFC mobile phone or other NFC devices. Images, texts and web links can also be uploaded and saved for posterity.
Imagine being able to record and play any of the following:
The words "I love you," echoing into eternity
Your wedding vows
Happy birthday greetings
Your favorite passages from the Bible
Your children’s laughter
The Momento Collection is an incredible blend of traditional jewelry and technology, available only from Galatea: Jewelry by Artist. Important notice: At the present time, Momento only works with NFC enabled Android phones. It does not work with iPhone. IPhone does not offer an NFC enabled function at this time. For iPhone users, please get back to us in May. We will offer an iPhone case that will work with Momento NFC.
Galatea Pearl"When an oyster swallows a grain of sand it feels the discomfort,so it begins to ease the pain by applying a coat of nacre (pearl). It is during this healing process that it creates a beautiful pearl. It is rather ironic to think that something so beautiful can be createdout of so much discomfort. This is like life itself. It is easy to love in good times, but it takes courage to love through the discomfort of our lives. The colored bead represents the grain of sand, evoking an aura of love, courage and healing that is embedded deep within the soul. It is this unique transformation that has given birth to, ”Galatea Pearl, the symbol of love"

“Be A Mirror, Absorb Everything Around You And Still Remain The Same.”
- Leonardo Da Vinci
When I was in high school, I frequently read the notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci. One day, I came across a quote
I will always remember. Da Vinci said, “Be a mirror, absorb everything around you and still remain the same.” As an artist, I believe in and can relate to this philosophy. I learn as much as I can about the environment around me but
I still try to remain original, honest and true to my existence.
This ideal was my inspiration for the DavinChi™ Cut. It is a new gemstone cut which has the ability to absorb colors, light or images into the gem from its surroundings. This magicalillusion makes the gem change colors when viewed from different angles and different points of view. There is a wonderful depth of field within the gem and
I find it difficult to fix my eyes on just one focal point. The stone has a sense of liveliness, and is seems to be constantly changing in color and texture.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Allow yourself to absorb all the things around you yet still remain the way you are.

A Collection For The Captain In Every Man
A “captain” is defined as a leader, a person who takes charge. He is the one who protects, who enters the unknown first for the benefit of crew or clan and does so with dedication and love. This is men's jewelry that celebrates the most important elements in a man's life: Loyalty, Beauty, Wisdom, Honor, Family, Hope, Strength and Love.
With each item, a legend is told and unfolds. And yet, like most good tales, the story of a man's life continues as the Universe moves forward. This is the never-ending story, the beauty of Life in all its mysteries. This is what I give you with The Capitan Collection.
