The Wallace and Francesca are huge hits in Japan since the time when I first made them in 2002.
I have a feeling they have stuck around and have maintained their popular status due to the beautiful tiny stone hanging from an 18k wire and because of their sentiments:
On the Wallace: Nothing is worth more than this day.--Goethe
and on the Francesca: The spirit is the true self. --Cicero
Megan, one of our engravers, gave a Wallace in 18k to her sister for her 30th birthday and it was a hit. I was told her sister is very hard to buy jewelry for but that, in this case, she never takes her Wallace off whether she is being fancy or casual.
I personally think the Wallace or Francesca are great gifts for someone being introduced to my jewelry for the first time...
