Life is a Journey: Luca + Danni
From Their Family to Yours, Handcrafted Jewelry Born in the U.S.A.
Fred and Danny Magnanimi grew up watching their father create beautiful, handcrafted jewelry in the family’s Cranston, RI jewelry manufacturing business. When the boys grew up, Fred moved to New York and began working on Wall Street as an investment banker, while younger brother Danny, still enamored by the family business, stayed home. Increased competition from overseas businesses created significant challenges for the business, but Danny was confident he could find a way for the family business to evolve and thrive. This was his mission, this was his passion.
Unfortunately, life had different plans for Danny. At just 33 years old, he lost a difficult battle with cancer.
Throughout Danny’s illness, he would talk to his big brother, Fred, about his dreams for the business. Danny was so inspired, so passionate about the possibilities. It was during one of their conversations that Fred realized life had different plans for him as well.
After Danny lost his battle with Leukemia, Fred quit his job on Wall Street, relocated his family back to Rhode Island, and set out to achieve Danny’s dream. Fueled by Danny’s passion and a burning desire to carry forth his vision, Luca + Danni, a unique line of handcrafted, American-made jewelry, was born to remind us that through love, inspiration, and passion, we should all boldly embrace the journey of life.
At Partridge Snow & Hahn, we provide counsel to Luca + Danni with business planning, corporate finance, contracts, executive compensation, tax, employment, and intellectual property matters. Our entire team is inspired by Danny’s passion and Fred’s commitment to carry out his brother’s dream.
