VAIL — LaNae Fine Jewelers in Vail will hold a special Valentine’s Day Cynthia Ann Jewels trunk show on Monday and Tuesday. Enjoy appetizers and special event pricing at her trunk show in Vail. LaNae is officially presenting its direct ­selling fine jewelry collection for winter 2015. Cynthia Ann of Cynthia Ann Jewels, a Texas-based jewelry designer, offers an array of antiques set into bezels of gold and platinum, which have rich history that makes for versatile fine jewelry to be dressed up or down. The event will showcase Victorian lockets and love tokens, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Cynthia Ann herself will be at LaNae from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.

“Cynthia Ann Jewels has really carved out a unique category in fine jewelry; we’ve never had a designer who appeals to such a wide customer base,” said Cherish LaNae, co­-owner of LaNae Fine Jewelers.

“Cynthia Ann Jewels makes jewelry not only wearable art but art with historical significance,” said Hakim Suleiman, also co­-owner of LaNae.

The Antique and Olds collection is comprised of one-of-a-kind medals: vintage medallions with religious meanings such as those of St. Benedict, the Virgin Mary and Guardian Angels; antique watch fobs (lovingly called “mantiques”); and vintage love tokens.


Cynthia Ann’s inspiration for her signature, one-of-a-kind medals goes back to the year 2000, as she was grieving the loss of her mother from cancer. It was during this difficult time that she made a trip to France. As she wandered through the streets of Paris, she was drawn into the many beautiful antique shops and local markets, where she uncovered a beautiful assortment of antique religious medals. She was very taken by the beauty and meaning of these medals. They reminded her of the strong faith her mom always had. As she rummaged through the medals, she felt a strong sense of her mother’s presence and knew at that moment that her mom would always be with her.

During the next decade, Cynthia Ann continued to collect these medals throughout her European travels. When her precious father passed away, she knew it was time to share her collection of religious medals. It was then that she began designing jewelry full-time.

Today, as Cynthia Ann pursues her love of design, the one-of-a-kind pieces have become an integral part of the collection. Each of the medals is uniquely designed to enhance its original history and beauty, showcasing its time-worn message in a new presentation. Her collection holds a very special place in her heart, and she is excited to share it with others.
