Hello Beautiful Souls 🌙✨,
In the heart of Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, our sister businesses, Angela Monaco Jewelry and Ritual Shoppe, stand as beacons of strength and creativity in a world that constantly demands change. These tiny but mighty, woman-owned and led businesses have weathered storms, adapting and evolving to meet the ever-shifting needs of their beloved community.
The last few years have been a testament to the power of resilience. We’ve faced challenges that tested our resiliency, grit, and determination, but every hurdle only served to strengthen our collective spirit. The path hasn't been easy, but it is worth every step.
One of the most significant shifts came when we made the heart-wrenching decision to temporarily close Ritual Shoppe. It wasn’t a choice we took lightly, and for over a year, we explored countless avenues to keep its doors open. There were moments when we thought we’d have to say goodbye for good, surrendering the lease and with it, a piece of our hearts.
In those uncertain months, we held our breath, unsure of what the future held. It was a blessing in disguise when the potential renters for the space fell through. We needed that time, that breathing space, to recharge and rediscover the magic that would breathe life back into Ritual. Thanks to the artistic touch of our dear friend and longtime colleague, Holly Simple, the space transformed into a vibrant haven for healing, spirituality, and now, the #1 permanent jewelry destination in Philadelphia!
Our permanent jewelry collection has allowed for a huge wave of community to enter our space, creating thousands of moments of connection that are nothing short of magical. We’ve witnessed friends, family, and lovers finding a shared experience through the jewelry they wear, each piece a link in their unique story. We’ve also forged powerful partnerships with healers like Sarah Silverman, offering transformative breath-work practices that allow people to journey deep within themselves.
Meanwhile, at Angela Monaco Jewelry we've continued to craft one-of-a-kind fine jewelry, each piece a vessel for magic and healing. Our engagement and wedding rings have become cherished symbols of love and commitment and continues to grow as we expand into custom ceremonial jewelry, like earrings, necklaces, and bracelets to accompany custom wedding and engagement rings.
The walls of our spaces have echoed with laughter and shared moments, as private parties for Lazer Links’ permanent jewelry have become cherished gatherings. Champagne bottles have popped, seltzers have fizzed, and we’ve reveled in the beauty of such meaningful and spirited connection.
And now, as the seasons shift, we’re filled with gratitude for this special time of year of renewal and reflection. Each of our spaces have recently been upgraded with beautiful new displays and new products and we welcome you to see what we've been up to! We invite you to share with us what resonates most with you most about our new spaces, meet our dedicated team, and experience the magic that we’re fortunate enough to witness each and every day.
Through trials and triumphs, Angela Monaco Jewelry and Ritual Shoppe have emerged as spaces of strength, resilience, and boundless creativity. We thank you, our beautiful community, for being with us on this journey, and we look forward to welcoming you into our renewed spaces with open arms!
With all my love,
